Each team will be required to present for a maximum of 20 minutes to a panel of judges. This will be followed by up to 10 minutes of questions from the judges.
This oral report will relate to the development of the team entry, including ideas that did not work and why.
The judging panel consists of three members: a community representative, a young person with an interest in education and/ or technology and an education/teacher representative. Judges will ask questions of team members following their presentation.
All registered team members are required to participate equally in the presentation. Teams may choose to include up to two (2) additional students (i.e. support crew) to join their registered team members in their presentations. However, the presentation roles must still be shared equally by all participating team members.
The display may include photos, videos, models, prototypes etc to explain the involvement of students, school, community and/or industry in the program and the development of their entry. To reduce interference from nearby panels, no public address or small music (CD) systems will be allowed without prior approval of the Display & Presentation Coordinator.
The presentation should be designed in a way that ensures information is well presented by students and enables the students to demonstrate their knowledge, understanding and involvement in all aspects of the entry.
