The Oral Presentation/Demonstration


PresentationThe oral presentation/demonstration should be a 10 minute lecture accompanied by a power point presentation or an actual demonstration. There will be a five minute Q and A period and five minutes to get set up. Altogether, you will be allotted 20 minutes per presentation/demonstration.  The goal of the presentation should be to teach your audience and the judges about something that you have learned in a classroom, lab or extracurricular setting that pertains to the sciences or engineering. Here are some examples of the power points used in the excellent presentations that we had the opportunity to see.
