Electrical Engineering Presentation

Last semester, I was asked to do a presentation for WEBELOS Scout Badge Day on electrical engineering (go figure). Anyway, I was asked to do it again this semester because apparently I’m one of three electrical engineers on campus who they figure is up to the challenge1.

Unfortunately, I don’t have the 4 hours to spare this weekend so I had to pass on helping out. However, they still want to use my presentation2. I still had it on my computer, so wrote some notes in the presenters comments and I’m releasing it under a CC license.

The target audience is pretty young, so I skipped over all the words (at least as much as I could) and went straight to pictures and a couple of videos. The notes are far from complete, so you’ll need to have at least some sort of background in electrical engineering to be able to explain everything.

Let me know if you have any questions and enjoy!

I also a collection of electrical-related images that might be of interest as well:

You’ll need to download both video files and either the PPTX (preferred) or PPT file.

  1. I actually have no idea if this is true or not. The email was just addressed to me and two other EE’s 

  2. Which I’m told was “really great” 

What To Talk About?

On February 18th at 6pm, Ignite Boulder will be holding their third night of presentations. The idea is simple, I have 20 slides that automatically advance after 15 seconds and I can use them to talk about whatever I want.

Anything.

So, if you could hear me talk for just five short minutes, what would you like me to talk about? The topic can either be funny or serious. The current leading ideas, that other people are presenting on so I can’t do but am including them so you have an idea of what the types of topics could be, include:

I have currently made my stand with “Installing WordPress“, which will cover how to install WordPress 2.7, including setting up your mySQL database, how to download and install plugins and themes. I’m currently ranked 20th and only the top six vote getters will present. But, with your help, I think I can do better!

So, what what you like to hear me talk about?
