Project Donna Dubinsky



You are to create a PowerPoint Presentation (75%) and a video (25%).

It is an assigned topic. Your topics are at the end of the document with the schedule of presentation.

For the PowerPoint you must:

· Research your subject

· Find photographs


You may be assigned an object that has evolved through the years. Tell me how it started and where it is now. Tell me how it has changed, improved and possibly where we might go in the future with this object. Be sure to be true to the subject and don’t go off topic. I don’t need to know how it is used or what it can do. Explain the evolution.

For example, MUSIC: Tell me how we’ve come to the digital recordings or digital instruments. I don’t need to know about a specific GENRE like Rock or Classical music.


You may be assigned a pioneer in the IT/Computing field. Please give some background on this person. What is it that made them a pioneer? Tell me what they have done, what they have achieved (awards, accolades, etc..). If they are alive, what are they doing now and projecting for the future? Be thorough.

Below are the criteria for the PowerPoint and Video portions of your presentation.
