One slide. Three minutes. Cash prizes. Give voice to your thesis in SFU's annual 3 Minute Thesis competition.
The 3 Minute Thesis gives you a fun opportunity to talk about your research in a supportive and engaging environment. Benefits to students:
- Improve your presentation skills
- Share your work and make connections with other SFU graduate students
- Develop knowledge translation strategies for your research
- Have a ready answer next time a relative asks about your work
Competitions to communicate your research are a great way to get noticed and build your professional skills. In addition, our research funders are looking for students with strong skills in knowledge translation. See University Affairs: Contests to communicate research gain in popularity.
