ATLANTA–Graduate students across disciplines took top prizes in the final round of the 2021 Three-Minute Thesis (3MT) competition, where they were charged with explaining their research in language appropriate for a non-specialist audience in a short time.
Developed by the University of Queensland in Australia in 2008, 3MT was designed to encourage students to develop their academic, presentation and research communication skills. The competition supports student abilities to explain their research in language appropriate to a non-specialized audience.
For the second year, Georgia State’s 3MT competition was held virtually, providing students with an opportunity to use different technological skills required for online presentations, compared to the skills used in in-person events.
Seven master’s and six doctoral students from various programs competed, and a panel of judges comprised of faculty and staff awarded first-, second- and third-place prizes. The Georgia State community was also given an opportunity to name a People’s Choice winner in each category.
