3MT Watch Party

Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a research communication competition originally developed by The University of Queensland in 2008, and now has been widely adopted at universities around the world. The exercise challenges masters and doctoral students to present a compelling talk on their Thesis/Dissertation topic and its significance. Many theses and dissertations can be over 80,000 words and take hours to present, but students in this competition have just three minutes and one slide to convey their often highly-technical research to a lay audience. 

Join us as we watch the presentations of 20 finalists competing for first, second and third place. There will be opportunities to participate in a moderated Q&A, and cast your vote for the People's Choice Award.

The watch party was great and I loved seeing all the cool projects are students are working on- we have really impressive students! My only feedback would be on the form to pick the people's. choice award. It only listed the students names, it would be better if the form listed their name and the project that they worked on as I didn't do the best job remembering names but did know the research. Again- loved the way it was presented!
