3 Minute Presentations

Three Minute Presentations

The Three Minute Speech Competition, based on an international competition that
originated in Australia, challenges students to present their research or design work
in a very short timeframe in a manner that engages a non-specialist audience.
Participants have three minutes (and one static PowerPoint slide) to deliver a clear,
concise, and engaging presentation of their research to an educated audience of
non-specialists. In these presentations participants are expected to clearly communicate
their research topic or design project, explain what work is being done and how, and
identify the impact this work will have.

 

Rules

  •    A single static PowerPoint slide is permitted (no slide transitions, 
       animations or 'movement' of any description, the slide is to be presented
       from the beginning of the oration).

  •    No additional electronic media (e.g. sound and video files) are 
       permitted.

  •    No additional props (e.g. costumes, musical instruments, laboratory 
       equipment) are permitted.
       
  •    Presentations are limited to 3 minutes maximum and competitors 
       exceeding 3 minutes are disqualified.

  •    Presentations are to be spoken word (eg. no poems, raps or songs).
