Summer Research Symposium Student Resources

Presentation Options

As a student, you can showcase your work through either of the following presentation options.

  • Posters should be no larger than 32” x 40”. The poster will hang by pushpins on a show wall. No foam boards will be allowed. You should be prepared to stand next to your poster for the entire duration of your scheduled presentation time, and you should prepare a 3-5 minute overview of your project. The poster will be displayed for the entire event.
  • Table Talk - Table talks are an informal spin on the traditional oral presentation. Table Talks occur around a table with a Moderator and 3 student presenters. A small audience may also be present. Each presenter will have up to 10 minutes for a concise presentation and time to have participants ask questions. The presentation should present an idea, summarize a project, discuss an inquiry and seek feedback. Presenters should work from notes or a paper.
