Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Final 2021
March 30, 2021 at 12:00 pm - 1:30 pmFree
UBC Okanagan’s popular Three Minute Thesis Competition returns in an all-new live virtual format.
Eight graduate students will take the virtual stage – competing for their share of $6,000 in prize money. Their challenge? To captivate you and the panel of judges while explaining their master’s or Ph.D. research in just three minutes.
Join our host Jules Knox from Global Okanagan for an exhilarating competition and learn about the exciting graduate research happening here in the Okanagan.
Dr. Katrina Plamondon will begin the event with an inspiring talk titled Walking a Path Toward Equitable Futures. This presentation will focus on using research to move all of society toward collective futures that are more beautiful, more connected, and more equitable.
You will also be invited to vote for your favourite presentation for the alumni UBC People’s Choice award and ask questions of each of our graduate student presenters.
For the past two years, this event has sold out. Returning in an all-new live virtual format, we can open the event to even more attendees. Everyone is invited!
