Golden Rules
1- Always come early .Setups can be very demanding
2- All team members have to be well dressed in all events
3- Be innovative , creative and leave a strong impression. Ineract with audience as much as possible
4- Plan early and smartly. Make sure that all your resources will be available on time. Stay on budget allocated to each team .
5- Communicate and coordinate effectively with all stakeholders of the event (Team members , media services , intructor and school administrators)  
6-Explain both the process and the product

Your Presentation Components

1- One well printed  color poster . You can print your poster  any where  and PM’s can bring the bills to Ms. Serena Branson  Serena.Branson@NJIT.EDU  in the Dean’s office  later for reimbursement (LIMITED TO $25 MAX PER TEAM).  Sample examples of good posters on this page . The size of the poster has to fit the regular isles we  have at NJIT  and may need to have a good foundation for your poster .

This poster has to map the process and the product of your project .In  other words , it has to explain the phases and the features and  functionalities of your final product in a story board fashion (briefly).

 2-      Live and interactive presentation from your entire team using  PowerPoint slides or PDF about the project and how it was carried out  from the beginning  . This has to run repeatedly every 30 minutes  or  whenever you have a new group of audience or even one or two people  wondering about your work. Expect your audience to ask many question or  to have concerns .Prepare to answer any anticipated questions your diverse audience may have.

3-  A live demo of your actual  product itself , running , functioning  and working well on a computer (smartcard system from media services , your laptop , a projector , a screen or all that combined )  . This can be part of your live presentation above and/or you can use a powerful presentation technology such as Camtasia Studio  or allow hand-on  testing .

You can download CAMTASIA STUDIO at :  .

You can also input voice with your presentation and leave it playing continuously while you make direct interaction with your audience .

4-  Publications that your audience can keep with them. This includes  brochures, pamphlets, flyers , handouts , CD’s /DVD’s,  business cards , etc.    Please make enough black and white and color copies. Expect  hundreds of people to come and visit you. Make all your prints using free school resources .
