Research can often be baffling because of how specialized and specific it is, but graduate student presenters in the UCalgary Three Minute Thesis 3MT make their research accessible to the community by demystifying it. The 3MT, an internationally recognized communications competition, challenges graduate students to deliver a compelling presentation on their thesis research for a general audience using a single, static slide in only three minutes. The UCalgary 3MT was revised to be online due to the COVID restrictions, and included new rules, virtual one-on-one feedback sessions, virtual workshops, and a D2L site with numerous resources to help students prepare for the competition.

Twenty-six graduate students competed for the UCalgary Virtual 3MT crown with hundreds of people tuning in to the finals on July Roman Krawetz, PhD.
