Written reports should be about 20 pages long.  Plan on 20 minutes for your oral presentation.  This should not be just a show and tell, nor the result of reading a single authorative, technical article.  You will be required present a technical topic in a way that you understand it, and not focussed entirely on detail, to an audience essentially unfamiliar with the technical details of your topic.
