One take, one static slide, no props.
Just 3 minutes and the power of the spoken word.
3MT is an unparalleled interdisciplinary opportunity for you to hear about the interesting research that's taking place around the university, as well as to pick up some presentation techniques from some of the best graduate student presenters at SFU — and all in 3-minute segments.
