Need Help finding a suitable sized board for Science fair

Postby wampa » Sat Feb 18, 2012 10:03 am

I'm doing a project this year for the SAcramento Science Fair, which is affiliated with ISEF. My project is well under way, but I'm having some difficulty finding a large board suitable for the Fair. The demensions should be around 36 inches wide by 74 inches tall. Does anyone know where i can buy such a sized board?

Hi Wampa -- That does seem like a difficult size to locate! I am guessing you've already tried your local office supply stores as well as craft and hobby stores that might carry large display boards?

I looked at the Elmer's site to see, since they carry a full line of project display boards and adhesives for science fairs, but the largest I'm seeing is 48". http://www.elmers.com/products/foam-and-display-boards/

48" seems to be what I located at most of the sites I checked. Sorry!

Dear Wampa,
My suggestions is to go to a craft store and find a board that matches your size and if you have your data ready they will even mount it for you.

I hope this helps. We have Hobby lobby in our town that do that.

Godd Luck!
