December 12: Final Presentations

Electrophoresis science fair project by Taimi Toffer Anderson; Acc. 90–105 — Science Service, Records, 1920s-1970s, Smithsonian Institution Archives

You’ll be submitting your final projects before/at the start of class today. Please respect the deadline; I have two days to review everyone’s work and submit grades before I head off to Helsinki to begin planning an exhibition!

During class, each student will share his/her work and lead a short discussion. Because we’ll need to fit in eight presentations, leaving time for transitions, tech set-up (and the inevitable snafus), and a mid-way break, we should allot no more than 10 minutes to each student. You should plan to talk for no more than seven minutes, leaving three for discussion.

The tone of these presentations will be more celebratory than evaluative; you won’t be graded on the “professionalism” of your presentation. Still, you should prepare what you plan to share, and have the relevant media queued up, since you can’t guide us through every facet of your project within the allotted time.
