People's choice:

Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a research communication competition developed in 2008 by The University of Queensland (UQ) in Australia. Research students have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance. 3MT is not an exercise in trivialising or 'dumbing-down' research, but challenges students to consolidate their ideas and research discoveries so they can be presented concisely to a non-specialist audience.

Memorial University welcomes competitors from universities in eastern Canada and Quebec to the Eastern Regional 3MT Competition.

Date: Wednesday, April 27, 2016
Time: 3:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
