3 Minute Thesis® 2016 results

The 3MT returned in June 2016. Ten research students had just three minutes each to communicate the impact of their research to an audience made up of school pupils, teachers, members of the general public and industry.

The 3 winners were:

1st place: Kuntal Singh, Dept of Biology, Feeding the World with a Good Grain

2nd place: Jamie Cawthra, Dept of Philosophy, What are the limits of storytelling?

3rd place: Laura Oxley, Dept of Education, Why is behaviour management in schools not working for everyone?

Jamie Cawthra was also awarded the 'pupil's choice' prize as judged by the 65 school children who attended and took part in the event.

I appreciated being able to come along to the 3MT event and hear some of our outstanding research students communicate in a focused, accessible way about the questions they are tackling in their research projects. Our speakers had put themselves in the shoes of a lay person and thought carefully about how to convey the excitement and challenge of their research through storytelling, humour, audience engagement and drama.
