What exactly do you mean by an application? More information would help us answer your question better. Thanks!

Do you mean applications for your project? Well that means, what is your project's use in every day life. What advances can it make for society. For example, in a project "Which battery lasts the longest" the application could be that you are showing people the best battery to buy.

Hope I helped.

When you ask "What is an application?," two things come to mind.

The first is, like tbnm815 said, a description of why your project is useful. An Application section in your report or on your display board should tell the person who is reading the report of looking at your board why s/he should care about what you found out.

The second thought that comes to mind is the application to a science fair. This kind of application is a paper (or set of papers) that you fill out so that you can enter a science fair. An application to a science fair usually has a few different parts: a section for information about you (name, grade, teacher, school, etc.), a section for your teacher and parents to sign, and a section for your research plan (sometimes called a pre-lab).

Let us know which kind of application you mean (the first one or the second one) and we will be able to help you much better.
All the best,
