Science Fair Display Guidelines

Displays can be made of any material, but must be sturdy enough to stand alone on a table. The materials should be easy to work with and easy to transport. Suggested materials are: a cardboard or wooden box, cardboard, or blank science fair display board (available at Office Depot and other stationery stores). Panels should be hinged together or taped with strong tape (strapping tape or packing tape).

THE MEASUREMENTS OF YOUR DISPLAY MAY NOT EXCEED:

30” DEEP, 48” WIDE, and 36” HIGH


Your project will be surrounded by many others, so it should be attractive and have eye appeal. Remember the “C’s” for exhibiting:

  • Color appeal
  • Contrast
  • Clear, concise statements
  • Completeness

Prepare a background which is a pleasing color (paint or cover with paper) and use contrasting lettering (lettering can be done by hand or by using stencils, or may be stick-on or glue-on letters).

Your exhibit should tell the story of your project. Include the Question , Hypothesis , Materials , Method , Results , and Conclusions using simple statements and attractive visuals. Your display must have (A) pictures or sketches AND (B) a properly labeled graph of your data.

If you used special equipment, the set-up should be placed in front of your display or in a place to enhance the exhibit - not overwhelm it. Live animals should NOT be a part of your display, but, may be shown by using a picture or sketch.


MAKE SURE YOUR NAMES DO NOT APPEAR ON THE EXHIBIT
