Presenting Scientific Information

Presenting Scientific Information

When presenting scientific information, it is important to think about you audience. How can you present your research in a way to help your audience understand your project and your research topic? Perhaps this means that you define terms that are not in your everyday vocabulary or explain your topic by using less complex words and phrases. It's also important to present your flow of information and thought logic in a way that your audience can understand. Consider the following steps when creating your poster presentation:

  1. Introduction - What is your research question and why did you want to investigate that particular topic?
  2. Background - What information exists about your research topic? Where did you find your information and why did you choose to trust it as a resource?
  3. Findings - What did you learn about your topic through your research? 
  4. Conclusion - Did your question get entirely answered or did your research generate further questions about your topic?
  5. References - What sources did you use throughout your research? Format it as a bibliography.

Scientific Method

Scientific Method

The scientific method helps remove prejudice or bias from the experimental process to produce empirical results. Experiments should be carefully documented and conducted in a way that can be duplicated by another researcher.
