Co-PI Natalia Villanueva led Cyber-Share’s annual student workshop on creating Elevator Speeches on February 6, 2015. An elevator speech is a short summary used to quickly and simply describe a students’ research project and/or interests and the significance of the research. This is a key skill our students develop that they will use throughout their careers. Cyber-Share asks the students to develop one slide to go with their presentation, which is recorded in PowerPoint. This provides an important record of our students and their research.
