Three-Minute Thesis finalists promote NDSU research at ND Legislative Showcase
On March 25, the inaugural NDSU Three-Minute Thesis (3MT) champion and preliminary round winners presented at the North Dakota Legislative Showcase, in Bismarck, ND. The graduate students had an opportunity to interact with the interim chancellor, as well as several senators and house representatives, promote their research, and convey the importance of the scholarly activities of the graduate students at North Dakota State University.
The NDSU Graduate School hosted its first 3MT competition this February. The competition tasks students with communicating to a lay audience, in only three minutes, the significance of their research. Twenty-six graduate students participated in five preliminary rounds; the winner of each round received $250 and went on to compete in the final round, with the grand champion winning $1000.
