EESW Project 2019-20 Video Submission

EESW were very disappointed that our special 30th year EESW Awards & Presentation Day celebration events were cancelled this year due to COVID-19.  

We would like to invite you to send us a video of your team presenting your project brief, design and solution. 
This competition is entirely optional and standalone from the EESW written project assessment.  

The most important thing to remember is you have already done most of the preparation – the project presentation you will film should be the same presentation you had planned to deliver, so you can tweak and record what you were hoping to present to us at the awards day.  

We are sure that some of you will be very creative in how you present your projects, but don't forget it is what you say that counts!

Video Content Guidelines:

As a team, prepare a short video to present your project (maximum of 15 minutes in length).  The video should include the following aspects:

  • Introduce team members and roles and your link company
  • Discuss design brief and company and options you considered
  • Demonstrate why you chose your final design, including any prototype/models/drawings
  • Explain any commercial, social or environmental impact of your solution, and any benefits to your link company
  • Provide a summary of how you evaluated your project
  • Finally, make suggestions to your link company for further investigation or how they could implement your design
 
For more ideas on how to prepare and submit your video, please download our "EESW 2019-20 Video Preparation Guide" below.  
Hints & Tips
  • Remember, you do not all have to be physically together for the video - you can record short clips and edit them together to create one video whilst obeying social distancing rules!
  • You will not be judged on the quality of video editing; we will be more impressed by what you say and how you present your project
  • If you have drawings, models, prototypes or even CAD designs, please show us!
  • Don’t forget, we will only be able to judge you on what you've sent in your video, so think carefully about how to communicate your project concisely and make sure everything is included
