Sketch Model Review
The presentation contributes to a portion of your shared section-wide grade, and all course instructors will participate in the review process. Each lab section (two sections per team) gives a separate presentation. The goal of the presentation is to inform classmates and instructors about concepts that your section is thinking of, and to obtain helpful design feedback early in the process.
You will use feedback from this review to decide which two concepts will be pursued in more detail for the mockup review. The exercise will also help you practice how to present concepts in a formal setting. The word 'concept' is used to imply that we are no longer just proposing big-picture ideas, but we are beginning to flesh out and explore how the ideas might be implemented.
Before working on your sketch models, you may want to review the "what to sketch model" primer, the sketch modeling tutorials on the course website, and on designy (cardboard and foamcore, polystyrene foam).
A video of your presentations will be made available on the course website.
Relevant technical, market, customer needs, and benchmarking data must also be provided. Some examples of sketches and sketch models are provided on the right. You can view sketch models from other years in the gallery. There is also video tutorial prepared by communication instructors for presenting at the review.
Be sure to also check the detailed setup logistics for the presentation.
After you have received written feedback via email from instructors, complete your milestone reflection in your design notebook.

All presentations will be pre-loaded onto a single presentation computer. A representative of each section must load and test your section's presentation onto the 2.009 presentation computer between 2:30 and 5:30 PM, and check that media are working correctly. Each section should have the materials for all three concepts in a single file. Please schedule your section's upload time slot and a TA will be in the 2.009 computer area to meet you. You will not be able to make changes to your slides after this time. You may use either powerpoint, keynote, or pdf files for your presentations. Please do not use Google slides!
Work in the Pappalardo will stop at the usual 4:45 PM, but you will be able to have access to pickup materials until 6:30 PM. Starting at 5:30 PM, there will be Pizza in the lab.
All presenters should test their slides in the presentation room (34-101) between 6:30 and 7:00. It is important that the actual presenters check the materials in the room.
Sketch models/presentation props should be in the hall outside of 34-101 prior to 7:00 PM.
Preliminary feedback will be provided in class on Friday and then you will receive written comments by email over the weekend via the online review forms (no later than noon Tuesday). The comments will also be compiled onto a single web page for convenient viewing. At least four instructors from other teams will provide additional feedback for your section. Once you have received the written feedback from instructors, please complete your milestone reflection in your design notebook.
Presentation videos and slides will be posted on the results page.
