Week 14 – Presentations: You will be required to defend the outcomes of your research projects during a public event to be held in the Promenade/Atrium or in Class. This event will be open to the entire campus community. Your instructors will attend in order to grade the final defense.

Step 1: Combine all research. Discuss the findings, summarize, and conclude.

Step 2: Cite all of the sources for any graphics used directly and/or created using the data from the original sources.

Step 3: Presentation- Practice together, check the flow, time and visual impact, revise the content, and help teammates improve their presentations.

POSTER PRESENTATION (5 %):

POSTER PRESENTATION: with informal oral presentations and direct interaction with visitors:

Poster presentation – Layout the pages as a poster, check the flow and visual impact, rearrange and/or revise the content if necessary, and practice so that everybody can explain the project to the audience (visitors).

  • Keep in mind:
  1. The poster should “visually” appeal to the audience as one unified project, not a collection of small projects.
  2. The poster should be “self explanatory” – meaning that audience is able to follow the poster and understand the project without any explanation by the authors.
  3. Use graphics wisely and select the font/size/line spaces effectively – most of the audience will see your poster from a distance (1m away).
  4. The poster should be innovative, don’t just copy and paste. Try to use innovative ways to design and format the poster

Poster should include: 100pts

  1. Title and students’ names
  2. Background
  3. Two or three subtopics- each subtopic should include:
    1. Title
    2. Hypothesis/thesis
    3. Methods
    4. Tables/Graphs
    5. Conclusion
  4. Discussion
  5. Conclusion
  6. References
