Project Proposal Presentations

Posted: Wed 25 March 2015

Next week, each team will present their idea for the project. You should plan to have no more than 5-8 minutes to present your idea, and then there will be some time for questions and discussion. You can use slides for your presentation (although it is fine is you want to present without slides), but should have things set up on a laptop ready to go when it is time for your team.

The schedule is below (but we won't rush the presentations Monday, so some of the ones scheduled for Monday may be postponed to Wednesday).
