What supplies do you need?

Our recommendations for a decent display board and science fair exhibit:

  • Foamcore display board
  • Copy paper and photo paper to print out your text , graphics, and photos.
  • Colored construction paper to set behind the text and frame your photos.
  • Graph paper (make your own with a ruler and a sheet of paper) for charts and graphs.
  • Glue, tape, scissors, and a sense of humor.
  • Touch-and-feel part of your exhibit people can hold, touch, press, or interact with to make it more real. This could be a holding a model rocket, turning knobs on a homemade laser light show, or anything you’ve bullet-proofed for the general public.
