I'm a soon-to-be university freshman and I was given this task by head of the department of computing:
"Choose three images, or create your own, that represent three aspects of what Computing means to you. For each image write three lines that explain what it is and why it represents Computing to you. These images and short descriptions will help us get to know you and help you get to know your fellow students."
I'm conflicted if I should go the extremely serious route on this presentation and talk about how computing is all about problem solving, providing access to unlimited information etc. or should I attempt to be funny and say that computing provides the chance to become a wizard in sense, because programmers will be able to pull of more and more impressive feats as technology advances. Just in general try to be more funny and less serious.
So, should I go the serious route or the kind of funny light route. Keep in mind I still haven't even flown over to UK yet and I don't know any of the people I will be presenting these images to.
Thanks for any answers in advance!

I've only just finished the first year of my A Levels, but if I was given the same task then I'd do a perfectly serious presentation. Sure, you don't have to go crazy on your first assignment but I think making it a joke will probably end up both an embarrassment and make a bad impression to the academics.
Either way, good luck

I envisioned how my "funny" presentation would look after reading your post and you're probably right, I should go the serious route.
I better make a decent enough first impression ...
