Step #8 - Oral Presentation

Oral Presentation

In the oral presentation portion of your science project, the judges are looking at how well a student communicates clearly and effectively using appropriate speed, volume and expression. 

The judges have about 5 minutes to talk with each student. Therefore, it is important to practice your oral presentation to ensure you are prepared and can cover the needed information in the allotted time. 

Students should not cover the entire scientific process, but rather summarize what you have learned. Students should focus on communicating their question, prediction, conclusion and what they have learned.

Remember to make eye contact with the judges and speak directly to them. Students should be prepared to answer science-based questions related to their project.
