Today we started the presentations for our Shark Tank contestants. The students built their presentations using Google Slides and stood in front of their classes and argued why their idea was the best idea for the sharks to invest in. The first three presentations were entertaining and filled with excellent content as well as sharp presentation skills. Fresnel lenses, hovercrafts, and Lego computers:
The students are scoring each presentation using a basic presentation rubric and offering suggestions for improvement as well as highlighting what they like about each presentation.
Today's presentations addressed each one of the Technology Education course competencies:
