Students (years 7 – 11) are required to produce an exhibit to display their science project as well as keeping a logbook.
Students in Years 7-11 need to attend an interview with the judges marking their project. The interview is quite relaxed, it is not formal, but it is important. Interviews are a chance for judges to talk with students to find out more about the project and the depth of a student’s scientific or technological knowledge. Read some example interview questions…
Full maximum dimensions for exhibits are given in the diagram on the right. Cardboard display boards of differing dimensions may be purchased through a number of retailers.
Students also have the option of making a wooden board providing it is within maximum allowable dimensions. Exhibit displays must fit within the space of the display board on exhibition tables.
At the Central Northland Science and Technology Fair you are limited to a space 90cm wide by 75cm deep. The height maximum of your board is 100cm. You also have an option of an additional 20cm height for TITLE SPACE ONLY.
Your displayed prototype and / or investigation pieces MUST fit within the display area between the board ‘wings’. Failure to comply with these dimensions may result in disqualification.
