Kingsborough Community College
CUNY Research Scholars Program
PRESENTATION FORMATS

Winter Presentation

Students will speak in front of an audience of CRSP faculty and fellow scholars for 2-3 minutes about their research projects. The presentation should include the research topic, why finding this information is important, how the research is being conducted, progress that has been made to date, and plans for further investigation. Additional information and complete details about the components for the abstract will be discussed in a group meeting.

Spring Presentations

Students will choose to present in one of two sessions.

Session A - Competitive
Students presenting in session A will prepare a power point presentation and a 7-minute talk (including a question period) outlining their research- it’s importance/ social/ scientific impact, hypothesis, methods, results to date, further work to be done, etc. Students competing in this session will be scored by faculty in attendance and the highest scoring student will be chosen to present on behalf of Kingsborough at the CUNY-wide Symposium.  In addition, the selected student will receive recognition at Kingsborough’s Awards Night in their graduating year. Additional information and complete details about the components for the competitive option will be discussed in a group meeting.

Session B
Students presenting in Session B will prepare a preliminary scientific poster, “old-school” style. Meaning, it can be printed on regular paper and taped together to form a larger poster. Posters should be no bigger than 30” x 40”. We will have display boards & tripods available for mounting and will have a scheduled time during the program for viewing.  Examples of scientific posters can be found displayed in the Science building hallways. Power point can be used to create the poster and is available on most campus computers. Posters should include similar information to that of the competitive session- the importance of the research/social/scientific impact, hypothesis, methods, results to date, further work to be done, etc. Additional information and complete details about the components for the non-competitive option will be discussed in a group meeting.
