The Kingsborough Honors Symposium aims to enhance the academic experience of students by providing them with the opportunity to present a paper or project of outstanding quality that they have completed at Kingsborough. It will enable students to practice public speaking in a round-table setting while talking about a topic or project in which they have demonstrated academic excellence. Students will be seated with two or three other students and a faculty moderator, plus guests. They will have 10-12 minutes to present their paper or poster followed by 3-5 minutes of questions from the audience. Participants will receive a certificate of recognition and their names/presentations will be listed in the symposium booklet.
