Royal Brites Tri Fold Science Fair BoardScience fair projects are great opportunities for a child to use his or her creativity, and finding a quality science fair board and appropriate board supplies is the first step to making a successful project.  The term “science fair board” can really include any type of poster board, foam board, or display board.  All types of project board have different advantages, so it’s up to you to decide which type of board suits your project best!

Since your science fair board will eventually hold the summary of months or even years of hard work, it is helpful to come up with a layout for your board far in advance of your presentation.  It is easy to fuss over the details of a science fair project, but you don’t need to spend a fortune on a project board and materials in order to impress the judges.  All it takes is creativity!  Before purchasing any science fair board or board supplies, read the guidelines for your respective science fair carefully.  You may have restrictions on what you can include in your project and possibly even on what size board you can use, so take care to respect them.  Most science fair participants usually opt for a tri-fold foam or project board because it is sturdy and easy to transport.

First and foremost, your display should feature the content of your project in an engaging and organized layout.  You may want to include all of the information you can fit, but it’s important not to cram your board with content because it distracts from the main points of your project.  Your display should serve as a visual supplement to your oral presentation.  Only use photos or images if they are relevant to your project.  A good science fair display should be eye-catching, full, and aesthetically pleasing but not contain more decorative items than essential information.  Judges will be more turned off to a distracting board with irrelevant content than a plain board with a basic layout.

When accessorizing your board, avoid any frivolous or flashy additions.  Using fluorescent neon paper is a nice way to catch the eyes of your judges while keeping your board professional.  For example, as a background to various parts of your board neon paper will help your project stand out in the crowd.  Adhesive letters and poster borders are also a nice option for making your project neat and visually interesting.  When it comes to adhering things to your board, use a glue stick instead of bottled glue to avoid a mess.
