Three minutes. One slide. No notes.
Eight graduate students will take on Three Minute Thesis (3MT) challenge Thursday, April 4 during the preliminary round of Brock's seventh annual contest.
A global competition that originated in Queensland, Australia, 3MT challenges students to present their research in three minutes to an audience of non-scientists in understandable language.
The Brock competition takes place from noon to 1:30 p.m. in Pond Inlet, with the winner advancing to the University's finals held during the Faculty of Graduate Studies' annual Mapping the New Knowledges Graduate Student Conference on Thursday, April 11.
This year's competitors represent many of Brock's Faculties and topics range from chronic pain self-management to intervention programs for infants at risk of autism spectrum disorder.
The entire Brock community is invited to attend the preliminary round to learn about some of the interesting research happening at Brock. The competition will be followed by a reception and a chance to interact with the presenters.
This year's Three Minute Thesis presenters include:
