Presentation session this weekend!

Participants should plan to arrive between 12:30 and 1:15 pm this Saturday at Canaan Valley Institute for this weekend’s concluding YSDE session.  The address is 494 Riverstone Road, Davis, WV.  Directions are at, and Google Maps can point you there too.  I don’t recommend trusting your GPS–they have been known to send people astray.

Presentation notes

  • Each group will give a live presentation Monday morning and also create a poster that presents your methods, results, and directions for future work.
  • Shoot for about a 15 minute presentation including a little time for questions.
  • Each group member should contribute to the presentation.
  • Slides should support your verbal presentation, not duplicate it (keep slides simple and clear, don’t read from them).
  • Poster should elaborate more (stand alone without much explanation).
  • Make sure I get you poster in pdf format before you depart–these will be posted on the YSDE website.

Packing list

  • Laptop (The computer lab workstations have been removed, so each group will need at least one computer.)
  • Flash drive if possible
  • business-casual outfit for Monday’s presentations
  • shorts and tennis shoes for biking in case of good weather
  • You do not need to bring any bedclothes–lodging will be in hotel rooms this time around, so linens and towels will be available.
