GY 302: Mineralogy and Crystallography Assignment 6-Part A: Poster Preparation Advise and Guidelines Introduction: The major assignment for GY 302 will be a “term” poster display. A poster can be considered a cut and paste version of a scientific paper, but it must be more concise, succinct and visually appealing. In particular, you have to be very selective with the text.

If they are “small” files (e.g., less than 250 KB), they will not enlarge well on your poster. If your image is pixilated, choose another one. Poor quality images will count against you. Do not try to convert the equivalent of a 10 page paper into a poster. In particular, do not try to fit all of the text that you think is necessary into the information boxes. Figures really are more important than text for posters so you may have to cut out some of the necessary material. Again, use the poster guideline to help you with composition. Your text should be readable by people standing 4 feet away from your poster so. Use the fonts I selected for you (32 pt higher title font;
