CP Presentation

Your Presentation is basicaly a 8-10 minute preliminary report
on your Semester Research Project.

It is a preliminary report of your Term Paper,
to a different audience (your classmates), and with a different style (informal)

Think of your presentation as a TED talk for your classmates,
if you are familiar with TED talks,
without having to pay the $3,500-$15,000 fee to give your talk at a TED conference.

(If you are not familiar with TED talks, you should check on them. Have a look at some TED Talks, TED Psychology Talk Index. TED Talks Topics.)
