Last night was the OIT Senior Project Software Exposition. It was Great!
I was really impressed by what we put together for this year's show. I went to last year's and heard from others that had been in previous years'... This was a much bigger and better presentation.
First, we rearranged the room to better accomodate all of the presenters and attendees. A classroom layout doesn't really fit for doing several software presentations.
Second, every student made up a poster for his or her project. All of these posters looked good and added an extra bit of professional feel to the whole show. We also used the poster images for a rolling slide show on the room's projection system.
Third, every project was very demonstrable. The two game developers even had multiple computers involved to really show off what they were doing.
Fourth, we had refreshments available. Much more pleasurable for those attending.
Finally, the invites went out to people beyond the school. The event was very well attended and I'm sure will set a standard for future senior software fairs at OIT.
And well it should!
