The Project Display Boards are an important part of your science fair project. Be sure to follow all guidelines in the Registration Guide and at Youth Science Canada.
Displays may be constructed using a variety of materials. Fire retardant materials are preferred, but corrugated cardboard or foam-core board will be accepted. Students selected to represent Peel at the Canada-Wide Science Fair will be required to prepare a board according to the strict fire regulations specified by YSC.
Displays must be sturdy, self-supporting and fit within the following dimensions:
- Height - 1.6 m
- Width (side to side) - 1.2 m
- Depth (front to back) - 0.8 m
All portions of the display must be in full contact with the backboard (i.e. no loose pages or corners). It is a good idea to bring a glue stick for quick repairs. Extensions to the backboard (e.g. for a title) are permitted but must fit in the required dimensions.
Students are not required or expected to perform any experiments for the judges. Judges are interested in the results and the student's explanation. Therefore, students do not need to bring the equipment or materials used in their project. Photographs are more convenient and effectively show what was done.
Displays must meet all Safety and Ethics regulations.
