Competition hones communication skills in student researchers

Presenting research
(10/31/14) — Imagine taking a project you’ve devoted your life to over the last several months, semesters, or even years. You’ve read innumerable pages of academic text and written almost as many yourself, or conducted experiments and tests so frequently you could do them in your sleep.

Now tell a room full of peers, faculty mentors and strangers about your topic and findings in only three minutes. Get them excited! Take longer than that, and you’re disqualified. That is the primary rule of the Three Minute Thesis competition, held Oct. 22 in the Mendenhall Student Center.

It’s the first time East Carolina University has hosted such an event, though universities across the U.S. and around the world have participated in the competition since its inception at the University of Queensland, Australia, in 2008
