3-Minute Thesis Competition

In a 3-Minute Thesis (“3MT”) Competition, students present a single static slide as a compelling summary of their dissertation research and its broader impacts. Presentations must be at most three minutes and targeted to a non-technical audience. 3MT is a great way to practice your presentation skills and think about how to convey the significance of your work.

Our 3MT Competition is scheduled for Wednesday, April 27th from 2:45-3:45pm. We are happy to announce that the event has been sponsored by The Royal Society of Chemistry biomaterials journals (Journal of Materials Chemistry B, Biomaterials Science, and Materials Advances),  allowing us to provide the following prizes:

  • $250 for 1st place
  • $200 for 2nd place
  • $150 for 3rd place

Be sure to register by Friday, April 15th at 11:59 PM and we will send more detailed instructions soon after! 

Questions may be sent to Nick Fischer (fisc0456@umn.edu)
