Tips from TAs:
- Be creative with your hooks: tell a personal
story, play a quick game with the audience, show an image or thing that gets the
audience's attention, have the audience close their eyes and imagine, turn off
the lights, present a magic trick, play a musical instrument, pass out food,
stand on your head, tell a joke, juggle, ride the unicycle, dance, etc.
you use PowerPoint or other presentation software, practice in the lab
room to make sure everything works. Use http://resource25.uvm.edu
to find out when the lab room is free. You are responsible for
knowing how to use the computer/projector/doc camera etc., not the TAs.

should be POWERFUL! Figure out something to do or say that will be

- Pause for effect!
The pause should be obvious (2 seconds long or more).
"Pausing" to find your place does not count for a dramatic pause.
- Master of Ceremonies should stand up in the front of the lab at the end of
each presentation and ask "Who has a question for our speaker?" It is
job of the MC to prompt questions, not the speaker!
- Posture: avoid the slow rock and roll, hands in pockets, and leaning on one
leg. Instead practice returning to the neutral stance, and natural gestures.
- If you are Passionate, your presentation will go well, even if you make some mistakes.
- Follow the dress code. Neat, clean, conservative clothing (avoid:
jeans, T-shirts, hoodies, hats, faded, stained, ripped, holes, navel or boxer exposure)
- Don't forget to repeat any questions asked at the end.
