University of York Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) 2017
Tue 13 June 2017, 09:30 – 13:30 BST
Ten University of York PhD research students have just three minutes to communicate the impact of their research, effectively and concisely, to a non-specialist audience.
Communicating to different audiences helps to demonstrate the contribution that research makes to wider society and the economy. The University of York 3MT® is a chance for our PhD students to engage and enthuse a range of learners about their research and, especially in the case of high school learners, perhaps even inspire them to attend a research-rich institution in the future.
The 3MT event will also feature a talk from Dr. Tom Hartly of the University of York's Department of Psychology and the North Yorkshire Coast Higher Education Collaboration's Give Me Five Competition, which develops pupils' research and presentation skills and enhances their understanding of research in a university environment. NYCHEC is a collaboration between the Universities of Hull, York and York St John, working together to support schools in Whitby, Scarborough, Filey and Bridlington.
