We're going to do things a little differently this time!

You and your team mates were just recently hired on at a big mechanical engineering firm for your first professional position after graduating from college. The firm has just contracted a design project in a new field requiring the heavy use of chemistry concepts to complete successfully. The CEO of the firm is committed to completing the project at the highest standard and has hired a phenomenal chemical engineer. However, the CEO lacks expertise in chemistry is unable to understand some of the fundamentals of the project, and the chemical engineer, being the genius that she is, does not quite have the ability to translate her work into layman's terms so that non-chemists may better understand. As a result, your immediate supervisor has tasked you and your compatriots with the duty of communicating the underlying chemistry concepts directly to the CEO in a clear and understandable manner. After all, you do have the most recent, up to date information on chemistry out of anyone at the firm, being the most recently graduated from college!


Key Logistics:

  • The review session will be held during Seminar on October 12th
  • The team's PPT presentation is due on 11 Oct @ 11:59pm; it must be uploaded to the Seminar_ExamReviews_Exam2Review folder on OneDrive
  • Click on your class link to see the concepts your team will be presenting: 741/9am; 740/10am; 743/12pm; 742/1pm
  • The overall presentation should be 5-7 minutes in length
  • Your presentation should incorporate content as well as engage audience participation in the material
    • We learned last time that saving all questions until the end of the review did not work well. Please incorporate them more fully into the material as you are presenting, more like a Q&A style.
  • Individuals within a team will receive the same grade, unless otherwise determined by the team following the agreement set out in the team charter.
  • Peer team evaluations will constitute 10% of the Exam Review grade for your team
    • Teams will review each other's presentations. Imagine you are the presenting team's Supervising Manager. How does the quality of the presentation meet your expectations for the assignment? Does the team performance reflect well upon you as their Supervisor? Did the team conduct themselves in a professional manner and present the concepts clearly and completely to the CEO?
    • Vanessa Crocker will perform the role of CEO :)
