The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is a competition for graduate students in which participants present their research and its wider impact in three minutes or less to a panel of non-specialist judges. The challenge is to present complex research in an engaging, accessible and compelling way, using only one slide. This is an excellent opportunity for students to showcase their research to a wider audience, improve their oral presentation skills and to build excitement for research that is happening here at Guelph.
Last week saw the second annual OAC 3MT College Heat. The winners are:
1st Place: Shanthanu Krishna Kumar, MSc (Plant Agriculture) - "Enhancing Shelf Life of Tender Fruits Using Hexanal"
2nd Place: Alicia Dobbs, MSc (Animal Biosciences) - "Taste Perception and Preference of Dairy Calves"
3rd Place: Carleigh Johnston, MSc (Animal Biosciences) - "Precision Feeding for the Future"
Congratulations to all of the participants, and best of luck to both Shanthanu and Alicia, who will advance to the University-wide competition on March 28th (1:00pm-5:00pm, UC 442).
