help with my science board!

AFTER you've done your research and concluded your experiments, it is time to prepare for the science fair. Ask specific questions about preparing for a science fair, including how to set up your display board, how to prepare a presentation, etc. (Please post questions about selecting a project or conducting your experiment by posting in the appropriate "area of science" forum.)

hello. my little 4th grade brother is doing a science fair project. the project is about if he takes a Zephryhills spring water, A Gatorade, and a 365 electrolite enchanced water, what will take more effect on the amount of energy a 4th grader has while lifting wieghts (5 pound hammers)

anyways, the main questions are below

Q: how big should his science fair board be
Q: how wide and tall should it be.
Q: what type of paper and how should it be decorated

i am asking this because i am not the much of a science expert myself :?

Hi. My suggestion is to buying a white board. Depending on how much data is in the project depends on the size of the board. I would print out the info on regular white printer paper and then take colored printer paper and put it behind. The white makes it look sharp and the colors behind the white makes the board (and data) pop :wink:
