Practice, practice, practice!! You can't practice the presentation in front of a mirror enough, be familiar with what you're presenting, don't read the slides.

Just practice and go into it confident. Confidence is key.

So, after staying up til 2:30 am in the lab practicing, testing our presentation on different computers and whatnot, we got to the competition, and our videos didn't work right. We had some demonstration videos, and GM's teleconference software wouldn't play them correctly. It sucked big time. We probably wouldn't have taken first, but we may have been able to beat the microbrewery project that took second. The two most important parts, our NX drawing, and our Matlab simulation didn't work right. Our model was not nearly as complicated as other models though anyway.

The matlab code def was though. We had over 700 lines of code written for our demonstration video...
