To raise the level of presentations given by engineering undergraduates, the Leonhard Center for the Enhancement of Engineering Education initiated a contest in which engineering students from Penn State's College of Engineering vie to give the best 10-minute presentation that presents an engineering solution to a societal problem. The second contest, which is shown on this page, drew from more than 250 Penn State engineering students who took a course on effective speaking. Managing this contest was the Penn State student organization Utree (Undergraduate Research and Teaching Experiences in Engineering).
This semester marked the third running of the contest. Attendance of the finals exceed 250 people . Because of the excellent effort by students and their instructors in their course Effective Speaking for Engineering, this contest is raising the level of presentations among all engineering students in the Penn State College of Engineering.
