April Conway presents her entry in the 1st Annual UGA 3MT Competition, titled "Conservation of the Pygmy Hippopotamus in Sierra Leone." Congraulations to April on winning 1st place in this year's competition.
The Three Minute Thesis (3MT™) is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland. The exercise develops academic, presentation, and research communication skills and supports the development of students' capacity to effectively explain their research in language appropriate to an intelligent but non-specialist audience. Doctoral students have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their 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.
