The tri-fold must be typed – nothing handwritten will be accepted! Below, you see an example of a tri-fold for a science fair.
You already have most of this information:
|Component of Tri-Fold||Content (Fill this in!)|
|Research QuestionThe question you are trying to answer with this project|
|HypothesisWhat you thought was going to happen and why. Explain the relationship between your independent and dependent variables.|
|Procedure & EquipmentList the materials you used and the steps that you followed to do your experiment|
|Data & AnalysisInclude all of your data (results), both qualitative and quantitative. Additionally, include all of your final analysis. Include any pictures or drawings that help to illustrate your data.|
|ConclusionsExplain how the data and analysis answered your original question. Include whether or not your hypothesis was supported and why. Explain the final relationship between your independent and dependent variables.|
|ReferencesInclude your research in this section. Make sure to include sources for all of the information that you found, including anything that you used at any point for your experiment.|
|PicturesFind, develop or create 2-3 drawings or pictures that help explain your project. Include these pictures in the “Procedures & Equipment” or “Data & Analysis” sections.|
|Design & ColorsHow will the layout look? Will you use white paper with a certain colored background? Plan out exactly how your tri-fold will look.|
- Use large type so that it is easy to read from a few feet away (on the computer, at least 16-point font is best).
- The title should be large and summarized so that it can be easily read from across the room.
