Each student team will produce a creative project that will be presented at the wrap-up workshop on April 6th. The purpose of the project is for your team to illustrate to others what you have learned from your senior volunteer about healthy adaptive aging. We hope this will be a fun activity that you, your fellow students and senior volunteers all participate in and enjoy.
A Pecha Kucha is a presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each. A Pecha Kucha speaker presents 20 images or slides which progress automatically, after being visible onscreen for 20 seconds.
To accommodate more teams, each PechaKucha will be comprised of 15 slides or images for 15 seconds before automatically progressing to the next slide. Students should prepare a narrative describing or amplifying the content or concept being presented in each slide. Your slides should be more visual than text-laden. The images should come from your visits with your senior partners or concepts that you have learned in the process of your work together. We encourage student teams to work together creatively to illustrate to others what you have learned.
