Poster Displays:

Posters will be displayed in building 300 (the main cafeteria) on Wednesday, March 29, 2017.

You are required to sign up for a 1.5 or 2 hour time slot to present your poster to the general public. Come prepared to answer questions and engage with judges for your chance to win awards. In addition, your poster may be published on the CREATE E-Posters web page. Here are some tips on creating a poster.

Scholarship Slam:

The Scholarship Slam is a fun and cool event for you to present the most important aspects of your project in under three minutes.


Faculty and students with the most votes (judged se per at ley) will win awards! Use your best ‘elevator pitch’ to speedily describe your research in non-technical terms; have fun and try your best to engage the audience.

In order to keep it fun, you are allowed to bring one prop and a costume of your choice! One Power Point slide is also allowed but is restricted to photos and a maximum 25 words (no videos please).

There are a limited number of spots so sign up fast!
