Doing the presentation with my group members is fun. However, I am scared that the judges will ask one of my group members a question about science, business, etc., and he will not be able to answer it. The best speaker, in my opinion, is Zayan, because he memorized his slides and his voice is loud. The one who needs most improvement is Ayush. He needs to start memorizing his slides, and also articulate his speech more. That’s not to say he’s a bad speaker, however.
We do not practice beforehand, and from how the presentations have went, I can surely say that we need to practice more. I believe that our presentation does well at communicating what we are trying to accomplish. However, the science is very complicated and I don’t think that many people will understand it. I want to improve the enthusiasm bit of our presentation. I don’t think we have enough of it, including me.
Some of the comments we received on GoSoapBox were unconstructive, but most of them told us how we could improve. For example, one comment stated that Zayan, who was clearly the best-prepared out of all of us, was the worst speaker, which I disagreed with. I feel like I am giving constructive feedback to other groups on GoSoapBox.
I predict that our prototype will work, even though it’s not a 100% guarantee. If we fail, we can take photos of our failed attempts. Because of this, I think that the judges will think our project was a good effort, whether we have a working prototype or not. However, the business part of our project is lacking, so we will have to work on that. I would rate our group among the middle-to-top of our period, because we are definitely not the worst, but not the best I’ve seen either.
