Projects are expected to present/display at the Northrup/Grumman Showcase in April. Project displays must conform to all applicable Federal, State, County & City Codes and regulations. Project displays must also meet all requirements of the chosen campus venue. Displays must be coordinated thru Dr. Reichard. Displays will be inspected by the ERC the day of showcase.

It is highly recommend that the ERC ( is consulted about your display well before the showcase to prevent and unnecessary surprises.
