       PowerPoint instructions:

      The first or title slide is to showcase your science topic in the form of a question
       (?). Use color and fill effects to customize this slide. Remember that your
       background color has to be such that I can easily read the text.

      Use six to eight clear and distinct visuals (diagrams, pictures, drawings) in the
       slides that follow your title slide.

      Alongside or underneath each visual, you are to include a minimum of one paragraph
       (5 sentences) providing a clear explanation of each visual. Use your own words in
       your text.

      Your next to last slide will be your conclusion slide. This is a summary of the answer
       to your question.

      Your final slide will contain your bibliography. Present the information from each
       source in your own words. Your work will be checked against the bibliography to
       determine if copy and paste has occurred.

      Remember: Google,Yahoo etc. are not sources. They are search engines.
