Thanks for your willingness to host a REYES talk and/or lab tour. The REYES program this summer will take place June 26, 2023 through August 18, 2023.
Please fill out the Mentor Registration form.
Below is a set of guidelines to keep in mind while you are designing your talk or presentation.
Guidelines for speakers:
- The lectures and/or lab tour are meant to take 40min, leaving plenty of time for questions.
- Your talk should be non-technical and directed to a general audience. The aim of these talks is to give students a general sense of your field of research. You can imagine that your talk could be designed around one simple concept that is relevant for your work.
- All talks and lab tours are virtual.
- Consider the audience's diversity in academic background and interests when preparing your talk. About half of the regular REYES participants are in high school, while the rest are normally undergraduate or graduate students. It is essential to limit the use of jargon, and any technical terms used should be explained clearly.
- Please avoid using old conference talks that might be too complex for our students to comprehend.
- If there are any openings for students to participate in your research group, please feel free to mention it during your talk.
- If you are a graduate student or belong to a group typically underrepresented in STEM, we encourage you to share your journey to your field and how you got to where you are today.
- The audience may have questions during the talk, and students often require clarification. Please let them know whether you prefer questions during the lecture or at the end.
