Read word document attached and create a powerpoint based on the information provided – instructions below. A template is attached but not mandatory to follow.
5 minute presentation – 12-15 slides.
Try to make it visual, not a lot of text, just the most relevant contents.
Try to display the most relevant elements, and keep the secondary ones for your explanations.
You can structure it however you need to follow your explanations (you can start thinking about five main parts: Background, Research Question & Problems, Solutions, Findings & Conclusions).
Try to highlight the information that supports the achievement of your research objectives and also the information that supports your conclusions.
A good exercise of personal reflection is detecting the weak and the strong points of your work.
Advice 1: Remember to speak, not read. The Jury by the time have read your work. No reason to repeat that for them. The defence is about explaining your ideas in simplified thus accessible manner.
Advise 2: Do not “copy and paste” the written paper to the presentation. Again – the panel members have had the chance to read it and wish to verify that students can identify key issues.
Students are advised to rehearse the presentation to ensure it is within the time limits established; if it over runs the set time, the Committee has the right to terminate the presentation and important concluding comments may not be allowed.

Learning Goal: I’m working on a sustainability exercise and need a sample publish to help me learn.
This first laboratory exercise is a virtual one in which you will explore human impacts on the diversity of species present in a longleaf pine forest of the Southeastern Coastal Plain of the US. Along the way, you will also apply the steps of the scientific method in completing the activities. Before you begin, please review SCI207 – The Scientific Method (Links to an external site.) presentation video. When you have finished, please access the Biodiversity & The Scientific Method Laboratory here.
The Process
Complete the virtual lab activities as indicated. Along the way, be sure to print/save all graphs that you generate. When you have completed the lab, print/save your Lab Notebook. Use this Lab Notebook as a resource to complete the Lab Report Template. Transfer any answers and visual elements from your Lab Notebook into the Lab Report Template. For one section of the template, on Sources of Error in the lab activity, you will can simply copy that paragraph directly from your Lab Notebook. You will submit the Lab Report Template only through Waypoint in the classroom.
