Coastal Connections at LSU

Louisiana Sea Grant is excited to sponsor the Coastal Connections competition at various state universities. The competition is modified from the Three Minute Thesis (3MT™) approach to research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland. The exercise develops academic, presentation and research communication skills while supporting the development of students’ capacities to effectively explain their research. Graduate students have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their research topic and its significance using up to two slides. Coastal Connections focuses on the ability of students to consolidate their ideas and crystalize their research discoveries. Applications should be submitted by Sept. 8 at 5:00 p.m.  More info…
