Directions for the Presenters:
Look up your poster's number above and double-check the event's time and location. A day/two early, find that location, and if possible, explore the room's layout.
Use your poster as a visual aid and "tell your story." P
ractice-practice-practice to give a two-minute "elevator talk" about your project and a detailed 10-minute talk that covers all your project details. Concentrate on "why this is done, what was done, and what it means."
For the event, dress "business-casual." 
Come a few minutes early. Get/make a name tag at the reception desk. Using the poster's number, locate your poster board. Your poster will likely be already displayed. If your poster is not pinned to the board (but placed next to the easel or with the organizers at the reception desk), find and attach it. If you have any pushpins available, bring 6-8 of them if you need to attach the poster to the board. Get the pushpins from the organizers at the desk if you did not bring your own.
When visitors (friends, family, fellow students, faculty, administrators, and alums) stop by to talk to you, tell them about your work.
Take your poster down once the event ends. You may take it with you. We suggest you discuss its future with your mentor and display it in the building where your work was done.
Have some cookies and menonade, and enjoy the event.
THANK YOU for presenting!
