I spent the weekend writing my speech and editing my JSHS PowerPoint presentation to my satisfaction! (For your viewing ease, my speech for each slide is in the notes in PowerPoint. There are some animations and GIFs that won't play unless you enter slide show mode, though. Either way, you'll see the whole collaboration during my presentation practice!)
I would love to hear your feedback, if possible!
Thanks so much! :)
Yes. I was so desperate for a clever blog title that I turned to Disney. ("Let It Go")
I am looking forward to practicing my presentation this coming week. I have completed and polished about 80% of my talk for the JSHS, which I will modify and condense for Gresham-Barlow.
I ordered my poster papers. I have two boards at home from years ago, so I think I will use them in constructing my poster.
Thanks for reading! More coming soon.
- Thank you for reviewing my JSHS slides with me today. I'll continue to edit up to March 9th.
- We discussed my oral presentation for all forums. I plan to write it this weekend and practice next week.
- Thank you for sending me Stephanie's comments regarding my paperwork. I would really appreciate it if you could forward me her response (if and whenever) to your response with my 2013 abstract, if only so I can rest in ease / be nervous about SRS approval beforehand. :)
IT'S SO DARN CLOSE
WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS
Right now, my paper is approaching it's penultimate form. I need to create a graph to show the differences (along with actually inserting all of my graphs into my paper), and then I can focus solely on my presentation, footnotes, and refining refining refining!!! I will go into more depth in class tomorrow (as I am dead tired because of a combination of extracirricular factors), and I can answer more fully Veronica's questions. But, anyways, here!
I have completed a first rough draft of my poster for the NWSES system. It still needs work, but I have attached the draft here for reference.
In other news, I am closing in on a first draft for my JSHS PowerPoint presentation as well.
Thank you very much!
I successfully pieced together a layout for a two-board poster, 72x48 total. The title is large and each section (introduction, methods, results, analysis, relevance, future work, conclusion, and references) is planned now. I believe the space is necessary to cover all my material, still in a concise manner but with enough detail.
Over the next weeks, I will be working on this poster and my oral presentations for all venues.
Many many thanks! :) All feedback is welcome and appreciated.
Updated in my research paper:
Afterwards, I will make the graphs and write them up in my paper.
In addition to the intro, results (figures), and conclusion components, I'm going to design a visual that will illustrate my methods (probably a flowchart).
I am starting to work on my poster for the NWSES system as well as composing my oral and PowerPoint presentation for the Oregon JSHS.
I'm going to print out two posters using PowerPoint templates from MakeSigns, paste each on a poster board, and clamp the two poster boards together for a mega-board. I've checked and it fits the NWSE size restrictions, barely. :-)
Does that sound good? Thanks so much again.
And here's my second design.
- More intuitive visual of DIFFERENCE between layers, I think - at least, that was my intention by using multi-color
- (Although my first design does depict layers with differently-sized quantum dots)
- You can't see the quantum dots
- There is no incoming sunlight (although I made the top layer yellow to invoke that)
Yes, the title of this blog post is a tribute (or reference, rather) to JT. Sorry.
I call it "Mirrors" because there are two parts, and they are reflections of each other to an extent. (It was just to get your attention)
Here's the first part. It's the first of my diagrams of a multijunction quantum dot solar panel.
- You can see the quantum dots
- You can see the incoming sunlight
- Maybe too busy with all those quantum dots
- There isn't a visual of the sunlight passing THROUGH the solar panel
What do you think?
Thanks for your time and feedback!
This week, I have been working on my research paper, adding to the conclusion/discussion section, and finalizing all my figures.
Due to the weather, I wasn't able to go to the lab these last few days, but hopefully, I'll go tomorrow.
For the display board, is there a template that we should be using? In previous years, I have used a PowerPoint template that the school provided, although I'm not sure if I have it anymore on this computer. Otherwise, we can work on the display board together when you have time during class time. I'll work on picking out the most meaningful and crucial data that I want showcased on the board. In addition, on the presentation side, I will be thinking of ideas to craft a narrative/story to better shape the listener's understanding of my project and the results I found.
Also, as I wrap up my data collection this month, I'll write a brief abstract that sums up my project.
Tomorrow, I hope to jump right into the serum dilution assay and the IL3 withdrawal at 10%.
