Student Presentation Details
Have you done an internship or volunteered in a STEM related field?
Did you conduct research in class?
Come share your experiences with others!!!
We strongly encourage students to share their STEM work with others by giving a presentation at this symposium! This is great professional experience you can add to your resume, and also a fun way to learn more about what other students have been working on.
At this symposium, students will share their research experiences at Los Medanos and beyond by presenting a poster of their work. Students may present individually or in groups.
We have provided a rubric you can use to guide the making of your poster/preparation of your talk below. Here are some tips and information to help prepare your poster presentations:
Students may prepare a 2 foot by 3 foot poster (landscape format) of their work to present. We will cover the cost of printing this poster if you provide us the PDF and pptx/ppt file you have prepared by midnight, Monday, April 22nd. Helpful hints in designing posters can be found here and a template will be posted at the bottom of this page you may download and edit.
