B.Creative Portion 

Description: In this section, the student group will use some non-traditional way to present the main issues regarding the impact / uses / applications of their optical devices on society or mankind. The idea is to use “creative entertainment” rather than “boring lecture” to get your point across. This may include:

-puppet show with puppets made of pieces of cut-out paper glued to sticks, or more elaborate puppets

            -mock News report with props

            -home video on topic

            -poetry reading (such as Limericks)

            -interpretive dance or creative movement

            -computer generated (FLASH) animation


Minimum 10 minutes long, although groups may take as long as they wish. Groups may need to lead the class in discussion after your creative event, to ensure that the audience got the point about the issues involved.
