The 3-Minute Thesis Competition (3MT®) was originally founded by the University of Queensland in 2008. The 3MT® Competition encourages students to effectively explain their research to a non-specialist audience, within just 3 minutes. On November 1st, 2018, the OUR&CI hosted a 3 Minute Thesis Competition, as part of the 2018 Autumn Undergraduate Research Festival. Over 30 undergraduates participated in the event! OSU undergraduates were judged by OSU’s very own faculty and staff, across a range of departments. All 3 Minute Thesis presentations were presented by category. These categories included: Improving Human Health, Emerging Issues in STEM, and Lived Experiences of Human Societies. Discover more about some of our 2018 Autumn Undergraduate Research Festival 3 Minute Thesis First Place Winners below!
