Agriculture and Environment Three Minute Thesis Challenge
17 July 2012
Each year the Faculty of Agriculture and Environment's Three Minute Thesis (3MTTM.) Challenge provides an opportunity for their higher degree by research students to communicate their research to a wider, non expert audience. The competition concept originated at the University of Queensland in 2008, and is designed to develop the relevant communication skills needed to effectively communicate your research in engaging and appropriate language suitable for the audience. It expanded to a national level in 2010, with 33 universities in Australia and New Zealand competing. The University of Sydney 3MTTM. is held each year in second semester with the winner competing in the national finals.
The Faculty of Agriculture and Environment held its first 3MTTM. competition in 2011 as the final session in its annual Faculty Research Symposium. In 2012 there are seven competitors for the title and cash prizes, with the final taking place once again in the afternoon during the one-day Research Symposium: SOIL SECURITY, co-hosted by the Faculty and the United States Study Centre on Tuesday 17 July 2012.
The winner receives $500, the runner-up $250, and the winner of the People's Choice Award (voted by the audience) $375.
Time: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
