So I have this college oral presentation about Caffeine Addiction. It will be a 30-minute work but I'm in desperate need for creative and fun ideas concerning both form and content. My teacher literally said "I think the topic is a bit shallow so your challenge is to try to come up with original and unpredictable ideas." It's gonna be next week so I don't have much time. HELP PLEASE!
Is caffeine addiction a thing? I don't know, is it really that addictive?
I drink at least a pot of coffee a day. I don't feel like I need to drink it, but I do because I love coffee. The slight bitter taste is wonderful.
You might benefit by comparing rates of addiction to other drugs. Nicotine and cigarettes are supposedly the most addictive drug. How does caffeine come in comparatively?
What are the health benefits? Caffeine does good stuff for the brain, as far as I've heard. The same can be said for cigarettes and nicotine. I think both increase brain activity over all, and may prevent some degenerative brain diseases.
Half an hour is a long time to talk, most oral presentations I have done in college were less than 20 minutes.
If you can have a visual element, I would suggest a powerpoint with mostly pictures, and few words. Every slide has a picture, and no slide has more than a sentence on it. That way you're not reading off the slides, and the pictures are cute, funny or thought provoking, which bolsters your presentation.
When you find some neat sources about caffeine and what it does, send them my way.
at the end of the presentation, after having given a 10000000 facts about why people should stay away of coffee but won't, you could close with.
If that is not enough to make you quite coffee, here is an interesting fact, currently the most expensive coffee sold on earth is valued at $1,100 / kg and is produced by being passed through the digestive system of elephants in Thailand.
If it is in class, and the ambiance is somehow relaxedm with other students and a rather cool teacher, you could say the last sentence while sipping on a Starbucks cup lol. and finish with yummy :D.
If you don't like the idea, just think about the fact that if the teacher is not interested in the topic or might get bored from listening to many boring facts, you need to think outside the box. Throw a couple of things that will keep him entertained.
