Displaying Your Project

Display Checklist

Other than your pictures (if any), you should use no more than 5 different colors in your entire display

  • Colors should be bright and contrasting, but not too distracting
  • Use photos to show how you performed the experiment and the results of your experiment
  • Use charts and graphs
  • Carefully space out the wording and pictures on your display to ensure that it does not appear too crowded or sparse
  • Display a model of your experiment. Place it on the table in front of your backboard
  • Display a copy of your journal on the table
  • Display a copy of your report on the table
  • Make sure your entire display (including the table) is neat, clean and tidy
  • Do not use handwritten or hand-drawn words and pictures on the backboard as far as possible
