Splashdown now has been scheduled with preparations and logistics for all of Sem I’s classes now settled. at SR1 and SR1 Lobby in Week 3 of Sem I, August 2016.
We’ll have a final, three-hour evening session, where all of you are required to participate (this is the very last milestone), in the form of a final Splashdown showcase!
Splashdown is structured as two back-to-back poster sessions with a final oral session and awards section; see the schedule below. Orbital teams will be assigned to one of two sessions to present their work. During each of the two poster sessions, each team will be presenting their work via a A1 sized poster that you will have to prepare and print (but we will pre-pay for you at SoC Technical Services).
|SPLASHDOWN SCHEDULE (Draft)|
|18:00-18:55||Poster Session 1|
|19:05-20:00||Poster Session 2|
Splashdown will also feature peer voting for best projects. During the poster sessions, take note of which other teams you think did the best projects and vote for their project electronically using your smart phone or tablet. We’ll tally your votes and announce the winner at the end of Splashdown at the awards ceremony. Guests (first years, and seniors) are also welcomed to attend and will need to register for the event to be given voting privileges; see the Splashdown page soon, when that information is updated. Google has kindly sponsored some prizes for the very best projects, as voted by all of you and our observers.
Details for Splashdown (such as the final schedule and team allocations) are still ongoing, but you can check on the latest details on the Splashdown page on the Orbital site here.
For those who cannot attend due to conflicts, you must let the instruction staff know ahead of time via email. Both team members must attend the event. Post-event application for leniency will not be permitted.
