Say it in 3 Minutes

The 3 Minute Thesis Competition was a wonderful way to practice distilling down my research to the underlying story. Now I describe my research in conversation with anyone with greater ease because of this opportunity. I recommend participating in next year’s competition. Go Vikings!

On May 8, a total of 12 graduate students from Portland State University, University of Oregon, Oregon Health & Science University, and Oregon State University competed in the 2015 Statewide ChampionshipThree Minute Thesis Competition.” They represented the 1st, 2nd, and People’s Choice winners from their respective institutions.

The Three-Minute Thesis
The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is an academic competition developed in 2008 by the University of Queensland, Australia, for master’s and doctoral students. It has since spread to 200 universities in 18 countries. Students participating in the competition develop academic, presentation, and research communication skills by consolidating their research and presenting it to a non-specialist audience in just three minutes and one static slide. That is only 180 seconds!
