Eastern NL : For the physical fair you will present your project on a backboard.

Labrador, Western and Central NL Virtual Fair: You will present a slideshow to the judges. You can choose to present using audio only or audio while on camera. 

For the science fair, judging for medals takes 15 minutes for each judging session (see below). 

  1. Your presentation of the project: 
  • this should be an overview of why you chose this project, what you expected to find (*hypothesis), how you completed it and what you found. 
  • This should take no more than 10 minutes. If you are working with a partner, that’s 5 minutes each.
  • You should practice presenting your project at least 10 times to an audience. Ask for feedback on how you can improve.
  • Don’t read from your slideshow or backboard but use it as a prompt to keep you focused and as a reminder of what to say next.
  1. Answer to questions from the judge(s) (should take no more than 5 minutes).
  • You should expect questions on sources of error, what you would do differently and future research required.
  • If your judge has a specific question and you are not sure, be honest. Likely the judge knows the answer to the question and is just testing your level of knowledge. Saying that you’re not sure but it’s something you’ll look into is the correct answer.
  • Don’t be afraid to elaborate on any answer you may have. Pretend it’s a conversation with a friend. The more comfortable you are talking about your project, the higher you will score on judging.
  • You might also be asked to explain how your findings are useful, especially to everyday life.
