180(s) Research Challenge

Each year graduate students take centre stage in the internationally renowned Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition. This year, TRU faculty are getting in on the action in the 180(s) Research Challenge (180sRC). The goal is identical: Deliver a compelling research presentation to a non-specialist audience in 180 seconds or less.

Coordinated by TRU’s Faculty Research Mentors, with support from the Office of Research and Graduate Studies, the 180sRC is intended to be fun, but there are also some serious prizes up for grabs.

The winning faculty member receives an iPad Mini, second place will take home a $100 gift certificate, and the People’s Choice winner receives a $50 gift certificate.

Faculty will be judged by the winner of the 2019 Three Minute Thesis competition, who will be joined by Graduate Research Mentors.

Come out and watch the action, and cast a vote for People’s Choice!
