Whether they're used to represent the immense blackness of space or the scenery behind an erupting volcano, foam boards are essential elements for the backdrop of your child's project. They are sturdy yet soft enough for pushpins and thumb tacks.
Pick Your Project
Are you and your child having a hard time deciding on a good science project that wows the audience? Science project books offer tons of ideas and samples that you can get tons of inspiration from.
Sometimes your child's project needs to explain a few things to help people understand how or why it works. Poster boards are the perfect method to write signs to post on your backdrop.
Make Your Design Standout
Every good science fair project must also have a good headline or title. Show the whole auditorium the title of your child's project with foam letters, or color your own with large letter stencils.
Make It Stick
Once you know the details of your project and you have your supplies in order, a great way to hold it all together is with glue sticks. An alternative to glue bottles, sticks apply cleanly, spreading a thin layer of adhesive wherever you need it.
Bright and Fresh
Attention to detail is what makes a good science project educational and engaging. Create project details, including planets, animals, and molecules by utilizing the colorful rainbow offered by construction paper.
Add Brightness & Color
Splash up your child's backdrop, banners and signs with markers, or single out important words and facts with highlighters. The more colors and types of utensils you use, the more the project stands out against others.
Showcase Your Creation
Binders serve two good purposes. First, they give you a place to keep all of your research and notes organized. Second, they are a good place to put any written material that goes along with your project for people to pick up and read as they visit your table.
