Three Minute Thesis preliminary heat

This Thursday, Oct. 20 at 4 p.m., UAF graduate students will compete in a Three Minute Thesis preliminary heat on Zoom.

Three Minute Thesis (3MT) celebrates the exciting research and scholarship conducted by graduate students around the world.

Developed by the University of Queensland in Australia, 3MT competitions allow students to share their work with a broad audience in three minutes or less using only a single PowerPoint slide. 3MT promotes students’ academic and professional communication skills, and increases students' capacity to explain their scholarship while engaging and entertaining a general audience. Spectators can support UAF graduate students while learning about their research efforts.

Finalists will advance to the event finals and compete for cash prizes in person at Schaible Auditorium on Thursday, Nov. 3 at 4 p.m. Finals will also be on Zoom and streamed to Facebook Live. There will be a reception to follow the event to celebrate 3MT participants.

The winner of this event will be eligible to compete at the 3MT regional competition next spring.

More information and links to the Zoom events are available at the Graduate School’s Three Minute Thesis webpage.
