KEY PARTS of a science poster: Title | Introduction | Materials & Methods | Results | Conclusion | Questions | Future, will vary according to subject, audience and requirements.
Good titles are CLEAR & capture the essence of the research topic, approach, and results.
Include authors' names, institutions, and contact details.
State your research question & objectives clearly. Be brief.
Provide the topic background - particularly, how your research fits into the context.
Give an overview and a justification of your experimental methods.
MATERIALS & METHODS
Explain your experimental procedures with illustrations like flow charts or reaction diagrams.
Most of your content will be in this section. Use photographs, figures, graphs, and tables when possible.
Summarize the main findings and provide interpretations.
FURTHER QUESTIONS / FUTURE RESEARCH
Offer suggestions for future exploration.
INCLUDE reference citations to the scientific literature used.
