“Meaning is constructed by the learner.”

The goal of the ISSF 2018 Poster and Research Presentation session is for students to present project and research work from their home schools across a variety of subjects. This will foster opportunities for students to develop their learning, presentation skills and share with the ISSN community their projects. IMSA believes that these sessions will provide the impetus for students to build international and interdisciplinary relationships during ISSF, that will continue after ISSF with students collaborating and sharing into the future.

During ISSF students will share project posters with their peers and attendees. The poster sessions will be held on Thursday, June 28th and each poster reviewed by three evaluators. Student poster awards will be presented during the closing ceremony. Poster presentations will be presented across a variety of subjects such as Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Earth Science, Engineering, Environment, Mathematics, Physics, Robotics and other related fields.

Judging Criteria for Posters ~ Posters must conform to the following requirements: No larger than 4 feet wide x 2 feet tall, Posters must be brought to ISSF. (Printing will not be available at the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy.) Font size must be readable from a distance. Use large font sizes.

Expected Poster Components: Title, Author(s), Introduction/Research Question, Methodology, Results/Conclusions, Acknowledgments, Bibliography of important sources, What I Learned, Future Research

Poster Format: The printed poster dimensions are:
— No larger than 4 feet wide x 2 feet tall OR 120 cm wide x 60 cm tall (A landscape orientation is required for the holders that the posters will be displayed on.
— A1 is used by England and Australia, and the dimensions are closer to 24″ x 36″ or 36″ x 24″ – so it’s a smaller poster size than the dimensions above and therefore not an issue for our display needs.
— Posters MUST be brought to ISSF – printing will not be available.
