Boys and Girls Ultimate: State Championships
Teams must qualify.
Hello, my name is Michelle Friedman. Here you see several photos of things that I particularly enjoy. The first thing is a picture of a piano. I have played piano for 8 years and I still love it. The next photo is up top, in the upper left corner. This is a photo with Benedict Cumberbatch and Matt Smith. These are the men who play Sherlock Holmes, from Sherlock, and the Doctor, from Doctor Who. Finally, the third picture is one you all should recognize. It’s the Science Leadership Academy Logo. I also have three words in the center: Hard work, friendship, and family. These are three big values that I have in my life.
That is basically what my slide looks like. But why did I choose to make it like that? Well, presentation zen and slide design for developers taught me to use colors that contrast. That is why I chose bright orange fonts and darker pictures. My pictures also have a border of bright orange to tie it all together. I made the background one large picture to make everything bolder and make the res of it stand out. I learned this from Presentation Zen.
For this slide I focused of the fun bubbly side of me. I made sure all parts of the slide showed that:
Them- I picked my that them because I thought it was the finest one. I felt it would be the most attractive to look at, and would best comp lent my personality.
Picture- It complements the them. It's fun, and adds to the light mood the them gives off.
Shapes- Makes the slide interesting to look at, and keeps it fun.
Color- complement the background
Sound- happy music that goes with a happy/fun them i was looking for.
Font- elegant showing the girly side of me, but the contrast colored background makes it pop.
Hello, everyone! These are my goals in life (shows slide). Now, the first thing you may be thinking about when you see this is the colors or even the funky doctor. The colors are not a pattern, even though you may think it is. I chose to make the colors that way to depict important words. The red words are the important ones, while the blue ones are not as important. You may have also realized that the blue words are slightly smaller as well. This way, even if you were in the back of the room, you’d still be able to read my slides perfectly.
Why did I put the picture of the doctor? I put it there because the audience would be pretty bored if slides were just consisted of words. I put visuals in my slide to keep the audience entertained and awake. You can probably call it my trump card.
Something that influenced my decisions is Zach Holman’s post about slide designs. I was able to look at some of the slides he created and how they were visually appealing. He was able to get his point across clearly, while keeping me awake. He made use of different colors/fonts which made it exciting and fun to look at.
As you see here, I created a slide. To create my slide, I used the concept of bleeding to the picture of the piano keys, so the viewer is left with some wonder and has to think about what the rest of the picture is. I made the type big so people would be able to read it easily, without taking their attention from me speaking. I made the slide mainly visual by making the focus the photos that I added. I created the slide so you would only have to glance at it. I used the rule of thirds to somewhat separate my photos into three columns, and added a small amount of text to narrate what I was talking about. I tried to make it as brief as possible, considering how many things I could’ve added.
Most of my design was following what it said in Presentation Zen: Make things big. I did this for most of the images, and then made the text a little bit smaller, because Presentation Zen says to make things visual. I started with the headcrab a lot bigger, but eventually made it smaller because Presentation Zen says to have empty space. I think I could have had a bit more empty space if I could do it again, though. I also made the bacon bleed a bit, according to Presentation Zen's tips. If I could do it again, I would follow the rule of thirds, because my slide seems a bit disorganized. I would also add more contrast if I could do it again.
When I saw the default font (Gill Sans) for the slide type I chose (White), it looked perfect for te type of design. I chose a puzzle-piece sort of design because it expresses ideas clearly, and looks smooth. Its coloration provides a bit of contrast between words, making it even clearer. It’s in a square about ⅔ the height and width of the overall slide. This technically doesn’t conform to the rule of thirds, more like the rule of sixths, as it leaves about a sixth on each side. It’s not quite exact, though. I didn’t use pure black, because it would be too strong.
In reflection, I think I did my slide well. It had an overall "Wow!" reaction among fellow classmates. In addition, it fits everything the assignment needed.

Hello, My name is Isabella Blackwell, I am a freshman at Science Leadership Academy. This year in Mrs. Dunn’s English Class, all students had to choose a specific topic that we felt strongly about to become agents of change. The topic I chose was to learn about what causes children to go into hospitals and why they are so appreciative unlike kids my age who aren’t in hospitals. I wanted to basically go and see why they act this way, and compare it to real life. Also, to give talk to kids in hospitals and give them “support’.
I want to put my focus on talking to kids in hospitals and seeing how they adapt to life basically “living” in the hospital. I want to go to CHOP and do what I said above. But overall, I am really interested in seeing what it is that keeps these kids so motivated and thankful.
