Louisiana Sea Grant hosted the Coastal Connections competition at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette on Thursday, April 4, 2019 in Oliver Hall Auditorium. The competition, modified from the Three Minute Thesis (3MT™) approach to research communication, is an exercise in developing 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 two slides. Coastal Connections focuses on the ability of students to consolidate their ideas and crystalize their research discoveries.
