Write an Abstract
Each student who completes a science fair project must write an abstract to be displayed with the project. An abstract gives the essence of the project in a brief but complete form — it should not exceed 250 words. Judges and the public should have a fairly accurate idea of the project after reading the abstract.
Before You Even Begin To Write
The ISEF web site explains how to write an abstract and gives a clear example. It is included in the ISEF Student Handbook

GNOSEF Abstract Forms
Abstract forms are available by clicking the links below:
Abstract Form— Junior Division (grades 6-8)
Abstract Form— Senior Division (grades 9-12) Note that the Senior Division abstract is the official ISEF abstract, which we will use at the GNOSEF. PLEASE DO NOT SIGN YOUR NAME FOR USE AT THE GNOSEF. A signature and the certification seal will only be added for the two winners that go on to ISEF.
Abstract Forms are in pdf format. These documents require Adobe® Acrobat* Reader, which is a free download from the Adobe® Web site. Click the image below to go there directly.
