Hints on preparing posters:
Pictures are better than text
If you have a lot to say, use bullets and schematics instead of full sentences
Keep font size big and font simple
Don’t try to be too cute

Poster template: 36X36_template
If you choose to use another size template, it must be no larger than 36″ wide (vertically oriented)

Poster examples
History poster: Oscar Lewis and Poverty poster
Chemistry poster: VSV Poster
Note that a poster larger than 36 X 36 must be oriented vertically for Research Day!
