Community Connections Presentations, by Collegiate Competitions Teams
Each team has 10 minutes on stage to make its presentation in front of a panel of judges. The judges then have 10 minutes to ask the team questions.
Each presentation and the follow-up Q&A is open to any attendee at Waterpower Week, as well as to all competing teams.
What is the Community Connections component of the Competitions?
This component of the competition involves 3 parts:
1) Creation of a team story: Teams submitted a 1- to 2-page team summary detailing their project, goals, and background.
2) Interviews with Industry: Each team interviewed a minimum of four industry professionals; each team will share insights from the interviews in the final presentation.
3) Community engagement: Each team organized and ran at least one educational event with middle school, high school, or post-secondary students and/or the general public.
