i'm the same way, i really dislike speaking in front of audiences, but if you have good information and you present it well you have nothing to worry about. try presenting first if everyone else also has to present, that way they wont be as focused, because they will be worrying about their own project :)
Okay, eye contact, try to relax, clear your throat, dont hesitate. Just look at your friends when your presenting and pretend like your having a conversation at lunch with them, except its educational. It helps out a lot. :)ik you can do it :)

Relax and act like you are just talking to a friend. I once had to do a graduation speech in front of 400 people. I was extremely scared but after it was over, I felt great. Just think about the feeling of when you'll be down with it and you'll be fine.
your gonna be looking at everyone, your in a crowded room. >.. this is most of your grade, everyone is stareing at you like a nest of snakes looking through your eyes straight down into your soul, and laugh the second you make a mistake. and everyone will make fun of you for your presintation, and the room just gets smaller and smaller and its harder to breathe, and theres a monky with a lolipop running around the room, and laughing at you...MENACINGLY! you feel this will never end. and you hope your not told to to sit for freezing up in front of EVERYONE! >:D
If you use glasses or contacts, take them out before you present, that way you wont have to focus on everyones faces (this doesnt work if you have to read from flashcards or a powerpoint). Other than that, try to be one of the first few to present, everyone will be worrying about theirs and afterwards you feel so much better since you got yours done already Good Luck! Hope this helps!
