Final project presentation 1. What our original idea was, why we changed our idea, and then our final idea IDEAS! Something from each category (number) and poll the class to see if it can be recycled, and powerpoint slides for each category Reenactment of UU hour, aka Adam being awkward Slide show of pictures Talking about Reenactment of UU hour, aka Adam being awkward And then talk about what we did to raise “awareness” at UU while slideshow of pictures is playing Explain how we came to how “Take Your Top Off” simplified our idea at first.
