Create Share Skill 1: Present your new knowledge to an audience.

One way to share your new knowledge with others is by presenting your research to an audience. You might share your research project with your classmates and others in your school community, with students at other schools, or even with a global audience. You could present your research face-to-face or virtually. You will want to get some feedback from audience members about your presentation.

If you are using speaking skills to present your research, you might feel nervous. . Public speaking is a powerful skill that takes time to develop. The more often you present to an audience, the more comfortable and less nervous you will be.
