Identify | Hypothesis | Procedure | Collect | Analyze Data | Conclusion | Presentation
Now is the time to pull together your research into a final presentation for the science fair. To present your project, be sure to include the following.
All the data gathered in your project journal needs to be included as part of your final presentation. Accurate and detailed notes on your data demonstrate the thoroughness of your investigation.
An abstract is a brief, one-page summary of your science project. (ISEF guidelines state that an abstract should be no more than 250 words.) Your abstract should present the essence of your project, including:
- a brief description of your experiment's purpose;
- an overview of your procedure;
- a short description of the data; and
- and a brief explanation of your conclusions.
Write a research paper explaining all aspects of your project in detail. It should be clear and concise and include a title page, a table of contents, an introduction (including your hypothesis), the research, the procedure followed, results (data collection and analysis), and a conclusion. It is important that you also include acknowledgments and references.
All of this becomes part of your visible display, which should be organized, eye-catching, and well presented. Include any charts or graphs showing your results. Include photographs, charts, pictures, or graphs to help explain your work.
