The Creative Presentation format debuted in 2016 as a way for engaging students that do not fit the traditional presentation formats. It has grown since to include students in the digital, performing, and fine arts as well as students with a creative presentation idea. 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 often to include an interactive component.
We have hosted presentations such as:
- 3-dimensional demonstrations of physics principles
- Set design including diarama
- Costumes and scripts
- Graphic Novels
- Photography series
- Augmented reality sandbox
- Real-time visualizations of story arcs
- Prototypes of design thinking projects
Creative presentations are set up at 8:30 on the day of the conference (all necessary materials must be requested by April 1) and remain in the Fireplace Lounge throughout the conference. Presenters are required to be with their project for 1.5 hours (similiar to a poster presentation), this is the choice of the presenter but the timing of which is designated by the coordinator (based on availability of presenter). Take down for creative presentations is at 5:00 pm.
