The poster should reflect the key ideas of the project, results and achievements, it is a presentation of the work performed.
Your demonstration should be attractive and informative. Make sure that your work is shown in a simple and accessible way for interested observers and jury members. You need to draw the attention of the jury to your project and convince them that your research is done well and deserves more attention. Usually stands or posters consist of three parts in the form of a dressing table and placed on the table. Most of the jury members have the opportunity to look at your stand before the interview. Remember that you will not have a second chance for a first impression! The stand should be of the
Height – 90cm
Width – 90cm
and contain the following sections:
- Background and challenges
- Project objective
- Materials and methodology
- Progress of work
- Practical application
Good name: the Name of your poster is the important element that covers the attention of observers. A good name should simply and accurately present your research and show in what industry it was conducted. After reading the title of your poster, the observer should want to know more about your project.
Take photos: Many studies contain elements that can not be safely presented in the competition, but is an important part of the project. You can take photos of important parts/stages of experiments for use in the poster. But remember – every picture or photo must have a signature (a link to the resource where it was taken or by whom the photos were taken).
Organize: make sure that your poster is built logically, consistently and conveniently for viewing. The structure should be such that anyone (especially members of the jury) at first glance could easily find the name, abstract, hypothesis, results and conclusions. Once you have everything sorted imagine that you see the poster for the first time. Emphasize your results with tables, charts or graphs-this will make them easier to read compared to the usually recorded quantitative data.
Delay attention: make your poster different from others. Use concise, color-coded headings, charts and graphs to showcase your project. Pay special attention to illustrations, graphs, tables to make sure that each of them has a name and an explanation of what is illustrated. Make sure that everyone can understand the illustrations without further explanation.
Remember: The jury will evaluate your research, not the poster. So don’t waste your time or money on it. You are judged by the level of science, not the show!
