BackBoard - NEW THIS YEAR
Projects must fit on a table measuring 30 inches wide x 24 inches deep. We will require that students use a smaller display board for their projects than in past years. Smaller boards can easily be obtained at Staples (36 tall) and Dollarama (27inches tall). The height is up to the exhibitor. It must be a free-standing, stable board.
What else can you display?
You will have a space on the table in front of your backboard. Use it to advantage to help you explain your project. A project always looks more interesting if there is something on the table for people to look at. Here are some items that could be included.
Models or actual experiment apparatus if it fits and passes safety checks.
Your log book – your day-to-day record of what you did and what you learned
A binder or folder containing Ethics forms (if you worked with humans or animals)
Bibliography and references in a separate folder if this information is not on the display board
Any videos of your experiment in action which you can show to the judges on your cell phone or other device. WiFi access will be available in the Exhibit Hall.
For more advice on how to display your project information effectively, take a look at the powerpoint,
“Preparing a Science Fair Project”, which is under Resources on the TSF website.
