Can you present your thesis in only three minutes? Take the challenge! 

The Augusta University 3MT competition is an excellent professional development opportunity to enhance your storytelling and presentation skills.

As a participant, you can gain skills and learn strategies to:

  • Capture and hold the attention of a large audience
  • Effectively use voice inflection, body language, and gestures to teach
  • Create an educational visual aid in support of a presentation
  • Deliver a message that will be retained by the audience
  • Articulate how your research benefits society (broader impacts)

Honing these skills will serve you well in: in job interviews, oral presentations, team building, study sections, at conferences, and when writing effective manuscripts and grant applications.  Ready to improve your ability to communicate scientific information?

Why should you participate in the 3MT?
