You can talk about what you have done so far and what you are planning to do going forward as well as anticipated impacts. It is important to note that your project does not need to be complete to present your work. If you look at these pre-recorded talk examples, you can try to keep it in this general format.
You should be able to add the supplemental information as a comment. It might depend on the size. You can always let folks know you can email them more information.

Feel free to use what works best for your group.
You can email [email protected] and we will work with you to upload your presentation.
You do not need to post your slides. However, you will be sharing the transcript. If someone asks for your slides, please make sure your faculty mentor approves of this first before sending your information.
We require transcripts to accommodate for a user-friendly experience for all participants. You can find tips on building your transcript here.
The end of your slides would be a good place to include citations. Here is a page to reference for more information on citations. You can also confirm with your faculty mentor what citation format they prefer.
If you have time at the end, please include an acknowledgment slide. This is where you can thank your mentor(s) and highlight any special funding you received to complete this project.
Any disrespect, bullying, or harassment of people and their identities will not be tolerated. If you witness or experience any incidences of this, please email us at [email protected].
Please respond to all the posts on your discussion board. If the question is repetitive, interact by responding using or rephrasing the answer you have shared. Think of how you would interact if we were in person.
The Canvas page will be open to the public on September 13th at 8 am. Presenters and faculty will have been added before that date to review and finalize the presentation.
You should receive an email to the email address you used to register. Please check your spam folder. You can also visit the Canvas site directly here.

Your faculty mentor should have received an email from the Office of URSA with information on how to approve. If they did not receive it ask them to check their spam folder or email our office at [email protected] to approve the application.
Email [email protected] about where you are in the process. We will make sure that your faculty approved the presentation. If you have an email confirmation approving your final presentation, feel free to forward it to us.
No, you cannot present without the approval of your faculty mentor. Please have your faculty mentor email us their confirmation, and we will add you to Canvas once you are approved.
If you work more closely with a graduate student, post-doc, lab manager, or other student, you will need approval from the faculty mentor they report to.
