Louisiana Sea Grant will host the Coastal Connections competition for University of New Orleans and Tulane University graduate students on November 21 at 11 am. The competition will be held in room 407 on the 4th Floor of the UNO Earl K. Long Library. 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.
