Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition

The exercise develops academic, presentation, and research communication skills and supports the development of students’ capacities to effectively explain their research in language appropriate to an intelligent but non-specialist audience.

Master’s and doctoral students have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their thesis or dissertation topic and its significance. 3MT™ is not an exercise in trivializing or ‘dumbing-down’ research but forces students to consolidate their ideas and crystalize their research discoveries.

A reception will follow.

TEDxUGA 2017: Spectrum

Prisms transform light into a spectacular display of colors; the ordinary becomes the extraordinary. Ideas have the power to act as prisms. They challenge us, they change us—and when we hold them up to the light—they help us to see the world differently than before. TEDxUGA 2017 will explore the full spectrum of ideas that exists within the University of Georgia. Join the fifth annual celebration of ideas worth spreading.

Freezer Challenge Entry Deadline

Contact: UGA Green Lab Program 706-542-7884

North American Laboratory Freezer Challenge participants will work to improve the efficiency of their laboratory freezers by implementing responsible and sustainable cold storage management practices, such as freezer and sample inventories, temperature tuning, and unplugging unused units.

In short, researchers get hands-on assistance with cold storage management practices, UGA saves energy, and labs get cool prizes.  It’s a win-win!
