One complete project and one project in the works. Documentation is required.
Deep Dive on one project and one period tool or component of that project as described below. Documentation is required.
Presentation should consist of one project, finished or at least 50% complete, and one period tool, technique, or manufactured period component that is instrumental in making that project. The presentation should focus at least 50% on that tool and its use in period.
