UVM Student Research Conference

Your Creative Presentation

Creative Presentations are for those students who don't fit the typical presentation styles (Poster/Oral Presentation of a paper) — you may have three-dimensional models, video footage, a dramatic interpretation, and so on. While artistic presentations are the most common uses of this format, there have been Creative Presentations of STEM projects as well.

How does it work?

  • You are asked to set up your project in the "Creative Lounge" at 8:30 AM on the day of the Conference.
  • You are assigned a block of time when you are expected to give a short talk about your project and then stand with your project: the talk is usually 5 minutes and the interactive time is about an hour. (Due to the nature of the Creative Presentation style, there is a level of flexibility in the layout of this option from year to year.)
  • You are expected to leave your presentation at the Conference all day to be admired (or used, depending on the kind of presentation) throughout the day.
