3 Minute Thesis Workshop-Public Communication for Researchers - Carnegie Mellon University

3 Minute Thesis Workshop

The PCR team
January 24, 2014

The Three Minute Thesis competition (3MT), at CMU for the first time in 2014, presents the perfect opportunity to hone your science communication skills. Participants are required to "present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance in just three minutes, in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience." In this session, we workshopped all the steps of crafting a winning 3MT talk: distilling the core ideas, conveying them clearly and vividly, and planning and delivering the talk itself. Whether or not they were competing in 3MT this year, participants walked away with the tools they need to build a compelling, accessible talk.
