3-Minute Thesis Competition

The Public Affairs Committee will organize the third annual 3 MT competition at the 2019 meeting. The following description is taken from the creator’s website: “Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) celebrates the exciting research conducted by PhD students around the world. Developed by The University of Queensland (UQ), the competition cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills. Presenting in a 3MT competition increases their capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. Competitors are allowed one PowerPoint slide, but no other resources or props”. We encourage all graduate students to consider participating in this event, particularly if they have fewer outreach opportunities at their home institution. Please email with any questions, and stay tuned for registration info.
