Eligible student presenters must be an undergraduate or graduate student at UM-Flint, Kettering University, or Mott Community College.

We ask all attendees to register. This includes presenters, faculty advisors, non-presenting students, family, friends, and volunteers.

All presenters must submit a proposal form. This form includes areas to submit the names and email addresses of all presenters in a group, the faculty sponsor, a project title, and an abstract of no more than 200 words describing the work to be presented. Missing or incomplete sections may result in proposals being rejected. Where a group project is involved, only one proposal form needs to be completed; with all names included on that single form. However, each student should complete their own general registration form.

All other guests (presenters, faculty advisors, non-presenting students, family, friends, and any other visitors) will be invited to submit a general registration form later, for head count purposes.

Oral Presentations

Oral presentations should be no more than 15 minutes in length. Ideally, you should prepare a 10-minute presentation and to anticipate a 3-5 minute discussion period. Oral presentations will be done in mediated classrooms which are equipped with a computer, a projection unit, VGA outlets for a personal laptop, USB connections, a document camera, and a DVD/VCR for your video/audio playback needs.

Poster Presentations

Posters sizes should not exceed 36" x 48".  During your poster presentation session, you will need to stand close enough to your poster to discuss it as others pass by. It is also recommended that presenters distribute hard copies of the research, summaries, or additional information. 

Each year, free poster printing support is provided to UM-Flint students presenting at SRC. For more information, click here. Kettering and Mott students are responsible for their own posters.

During the event, easels, foam board, and binding clips are provided to mount and display your poster.

Performance and Demonstration Projects

Students can also conduct performances that include art, music, and/or drama. Wherever possible, performances will be scheduled with other performances and/or oral presentations with the same themes. The performance should last 10-12 minutes and not longer than 15 minutes. A brief introduction should be included with the presentation, along with a brief discussion period at the end of the presentation.

Students demostrating a product or invention will be allowed to do so in conjunction with the hour-long poster sessions. Space and equipment will be provided as requested by the presenter.
