2.009 Final Presentations Webcast
The final project milestone is a formal presentation that is attended by the entire class, all instructors, course sponsors, and guests from product development firms. The presentation is structured as a new product launch event. There will be in excess of 1100 guests in the theater, and a larger audience online (in 2017, 40,000 unique IPs followed the webcast for a minimum of 15 minutes)! It takes place during the evening on the date indicated in the class schedule and contributes to a portion of your shared team-wide grade.
The presentation provides each team with the opportunity to show their work to a wide audience that includes academics and industry representatives. It will help you learn how to prepare a polished technical presentation that is intended for a diverse, but educated, technical, non-technical, and business oriented audience.
