Workshop #4

Showcase Your Project: Preparing for a Successful Presentation

Congratulations! You've gone through the screening process and have been approved to enter the GSDSEF! But now you’re wondering, “What do I need to do to be prepared? What happens during judging? What do I say to the judges? How do I make a good impression?” 


We’ll help you prepare for the judging process and offer advice on presenting and interacting effectively. You’ll be able to meet and practice your presentation with several judges and experienced Student Leadership Board members. Bring your display board and any paraphernalia/prototypes to use as you practice your presentation! This will be a very interactive session!!

We'll also go over the schedule of Science Fair Week, what you need to bring - and NOT bring - and also over the procedures to check in and set up your project.
