    • The preferred file formats are PowerPoint (.ppt) and Adobe PDF (.pdf). Please check with the Rapid Prototype Lab if you have any questions or concerns through email at or in person by visiting the MLK Library located in the lower level of the building during open hours (Monday thru Thursday).
  3. Poster Size
