Background information: As part of the Extended Project Qualification a student is required to present their project to a non-specialist audience, in such a way that they feel is suitable; it should be reflective of both their ‘personal journey’ and their findings. Each student has now been involved with his or her project for a year and this presentation almost concludes the process. Following the presentation a student’s response to questioning is recorded as part of their assessment, so please ask any questions.
