Final presentation

Hi guys, i'm not sure who has the final presentation and is sending it to Chris, but I found that in a couple of my slides there is some info missing because of the black banner at the top. Could the person who is sending the final presentation just look at it for me and change the bits that are hidden to white please? Thank you :)

The next presentation....

Hi guys,
So, as we know we've got to do another presentation in about 3 weeks on a topic of our choice. Now I think we need to decide on what our subject will be asap and then stick to it so we don't waste too much time on that.

So I was thinking maybe art movement or specific artist.... or maybe something like the motor engine as that has revolutionised everything and can easily be brought forward and back in time...

Just some thoughts... let me know, I'm sure you'll all come up with something much better than me :)
