2016 IET Present Around the World (PAtW) Competition is once again in full swing!
The IET (www.theiet.org) is holding a Present Around the World (PATW) Competition to university undergraduates, graduate students (technologists included) and recent grads (aged 18-26). Individual competitors are asked to make a 10 minute presentation on a science or engineering subject plus a 5 min Q&A period. The presentation can be on a co-op experience, a research project, an internship, or a related topic to science or engineering.
First place receives $240 with second place receiving $160. The winner will attend the Americas Finals of the competition, which this year will be held in Toronto in the summer. The winner of the Americas Finals be sent on to the global finals in London, England this fall. PATW is a great opportunity for students, especially those currently working on projects, Co-op internships, research, or a Master’s degree. Students will be able to improve their communication and public speaking skills and receive feedback from judges. The emphasis is on the presenter's presentation skills (70% of grading) rather than technical content (30% of grading), enabling competitors at varying levels of their studies or career to participate on an equal footing.
The deadline for registration in February 27, 2016.
