I had to play with the commands a few months ago and found following
solution to the font size issue:

additional header:
\usepackage{txfonts} #load a scalable font (Computer Modern is not!)

Latex body:
\fontsize{40pt}{10pt}\selectfont Big text
i \hbar \frac{\partial}{\partial t} \mathit{\Psi} = - \frac{\hbar^2}{2
m} \Delta \mathit{\Psi}

For a scientific poster you might as well want to chose font color,
which can be achieved by loading the package color (\usepackage{color})
in the header and the command \color{<color>}.

Best regards,
