* There is a format already done for you on Word if you go to “Business forms” and then “Brochures.” Make your brochure stand out with color and design, but make sure you include all of the content.*
Think about the following criteria while creating your Brochure:
Accuracy of Content- this means all of your information is factual. You have clearly described and defended what your system does and how this makes it the most important.
Attractiveness and Organization- Does it look like quality work (or like you threw it together in 10 minutes)? Is it colorful and straight forward in describing the system? Is the brochure professional looking?
Graphics and Pictures- You need to include a diagram, which shows all of the organs within your body system. The organs should be in color and either labeled on that page, or described on the side.
References: As a professional brochure, you need to tell the world where your factual information AND pictures were taken from. You can use the handout, or go on the website for formatting information. The way you present your sources should be in the correct order and alphabetical.
