We are pleased to invite you to the second-annual WCGS/GSK Three-Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition. The event, which will be a joint competition for Weill Cornell Graduate School and Gerstner Sloan Kettering Graduate School students, will be held at 4pm on Nov 28, 2016 in the Zuckerman building (open to all), with a mixer to follow.
3MT®, founded by the University of Queensland, Australia, is an event that "cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills. The competition supports their capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.”
Students who have joined their thesis laboratory have been invited to participate in the competition. Participation is entirely optional. Each participant will have three minutes and one slide to describe their research to a scientifically fluent audience. Additional rules and example winning presentations from other institutions can be found at threeminutethesis.org. A panel of judges representing students, faculty, and staff will judge the talks.
