Student Presentation Examples

View on YouTube


Our intention is to enable students and their supporters to think more deeply than we’re able in the classroom while sharing in formal and less formal networking opportunities.

How to Start

We invite you to contact Professor Dalel Serda ( and/or Dr. Shinya Wakao ( if you want elaboration on possibilities. Please submit 150 to 300-word abstracts through our abstract submission link by Friday, February 25, 2022, at midnight. Please follow the abstract protocols and conventions of the subject/discipline (i.e., STEM, humanities, fine arts, social science) you select. For specifics, please ask a professor who may serve as an advisor or mentor for your project, or contact us directly. This event is free and open to the public.

Note: You do not need an advisor or mentor to submit an abstract for a project presentation. You may work alone as an independent scholar. This event is free and open to area high school, community college, and university students. Please limit your submissions to two per person.

Additional note: Work to offer your audience an argument and support with evidence. Ideally, your work—whatever the subject—is contextualized in research. Bring something new to an existing discussion or area.
