Rapid Fire Sessions at WE13 Seeking Judges

The Graduate Community is hosting 2 separate Rapid Fire Sessions at WE13.  Each graduate student listed below, selected through a competitive abstract submission review process, will be giving a 5 minute presentation explaining how their research meets the National Academy of Engineering’s Grand Challenges in Engineering.

We are interested in having a diverse audience of professionals and academics participate as judges for the presentations.  No previous experience or background work is needed to be a judge. If you are interested in participating as a judge please contact: Marcella Vaicik (Marcella.vaicik@swe.org) and let her know which day or both that you would like to participate.  Judges will listen to the presentation during the session and then fill out a short feedback form that is anonymous.  At the end of the session the graduate student presenters will receive their feedback forms.

Rapid Fire Sessions are a great way to learn about cutting edge research in a short easy to understand format.  Graduate students are excited to share their technical work with people outside of their discipline at WE13 and to receive feedback to improve their technical communication skills.
