Game on at 3-Minute Thesis Competition
Graduate students will have their game on for the upcoming sixth annual University of Winnipeg Graduate Studies 3-Minute Thesis Competition (3MT™) on Thursday, April 11, 1:30-4:00 pm in Eckhardt Gramatté Hall. Master’s students from a variety of graduate programs will compete for a $1000 top prize and a $500 People’s Choice Award. The 15 competitors come from a range of disciplines and will require nerves of steel talent to compete in this arena of research.
The participants will each have only three minutes to stand before their peers and profs and articulate their thesis in a coherent and engaging three minutes with only one static slide. UWinnipeg’s 3MT™ is an exciting event that highlights the range of dynamic students doing research in an engaging, accessible, and compelling way.
“It was a great learning experience to help prepare me for future presentations,” she said. “I tried to make it scientifically sound but also entertaining.”
The 3-Minute Thesis (3MT™) is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland which challenges postgraduate degree students to present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience within just three minutes.
