Scientific Posters

Up until now when you’ve done a poster teachers have probably encouraged you to write very little, draw something eye-catching and maybe have a slogan. There is another kid of poster which is a scientific poster and that is very different.

In a scientific poster you need to get people to understand your

  • Title
  • Aim
  • Method
  • Findings
  • Conclusions
  • Research
  • Applications

This means that your poster will have writing and often quite a lot, but if you can put the information is a graph or photo- as they say a picture tells a thousand words.

Here are some scientific posters from the kind Science Community at Scottish Universities and also some Science on Stage Posters made by teachers about their work in schools, you might recognise some of them.

Don’t worry if you don’t understand all the content, you are using them as an idea of layout and what you need to add in.

Template for your Scientific Poster

Please use the correct template for your class. You can change any part of the slide, except the header.
