Last Thursday, an Oakland University professor gave a presentation on how to prepare for poster and lecture style presentations to the REU students. We obtained valuable knowledge and insight as well as listened to the professor’s advice for presenting our research to the audience at Michigan State University. Since the Mid-SURE Conference will be held on July 27th, 2016, we need to start preparing for the conference now. Dr. Guessous provided us with a few poster templates for our reference and we started working on putting the poster together Friday. The poster must be completed and submitted for printing by this Friday, July 22nd. We hope to have Dr. Yang and Dr. Guessous review our poster before then. Over the weekend, Dr. Narainen sent us the some references that would be of great help for the SAE paper we are working on. We will also be working on making the necessary changes to our paper soon.
