Remaining Classes

The scheduled class meetings on Thursday, 23 April and Tuesday, 28 April will be open office hours for discussions about any topic you are interested in, including your final projects. This will be an opportunity to get feedback or advice on any issues for your project, including both techincal and research issues, as well as on planning your presentation. You are also encouraged to use these times as opportunities to coordinate with your team and work on completing your project. You can also you the time on April 28 to test out presenting using zoom and experiment with different options you mnight want to use in your project presentation.

Final Project Submissions

Final project submissions are due Tuesday, 28 April, 2:59pm. For the project submssion, you will submit a form with your project title, team members, URL (if you have a public project site), and answer questions about whether or not you want your presentation recorded and shared, and if you would like to request more than 10 minutes for your presentation. It is not necessary to submit a formal project report or paper if the website you submit is self-contained (e.g., if it is a code repository, it should include a README.md that explains the purpose of your project and describes your results).

Final Projects Symposium Spectacular!

Wednesday, 29 April, 2:00-4:30pm we will hold a Final Projects Symposium Spectacular! This will be in our favorite zoom meeting room. Due to limitations of current Internet Protocols, we regret that the symposium will be BYOB.

Each team will have up to 10 minutes to present your project (unless you pre-arranged for additional time). Your presentation can be a demo, slide show, puppet show, musical, video, or any other form of presentation that you can transmit through zoom.
