Full Answer

A science project title must convey what the project is about, but it can have a humorous or interesting twist to grab the reader's attention. No matter what title is used, there are some basic rules for creating a good title for any science project.

  1. Spell correctly
  2. Even if a science project is informative, interesting and entertaining, if the title is spelled incorrectly, that is likely the largest thing judges will notice.

  3. Use readable fonts
  4. It may seem like a good idea to use cool fonts, but often times if they are too fancy or too small they are unreadable. An unreadable title for a science project is cause for criticism from the judges.

  5. Center the title
  6. There are often three boards included in the science project backing, but the title belongs only on the center board. Avoid wrapping the title around all three boards, as the end result is visually distracting.

    How do I create a project about wheels reducing friction for a science fair?

    A:

    To create a science fair project about wheels reducing friction, the exhibitioner could give live demonstrations of how difficult it is to push identical objects across a surface with and without wheels. Friction is the resistance of a body to motion in contact with another body and is directly proportional to the contact area between two surfaces; wheeled bodies move more smoothly over surfaces because their contact areas are reduced.
