3 Minutes to Change the World

Explore the contributions and diversity of McGill’s graduate research and compete in a national thesis competition!

April 2 from 1-2:30 p.m. at Thomson House 


McGill’s Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies hosted the fourth annual 3 Minutes to Change the World event. 3 Minutes is a TED-talk style event featuring McGill graduate students giving three-minute presentations about their research initiatives and their impact on the community. The event was on April 2, 2015 from 1-2:30 p.m. at Thomson House. 

This year, we partnered once again with the Canadian Association for Graduate Studies (CAGS) and Universitas21 to participate in the second national Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition. A 3 Minutes to Change the World presenter has been selected to represent McGill at the CAGS 3MT eastern regional finals and U21 3MT international competition

This yearly event is an excellent opportunity for students to share their valuable research, to perfect their elevator pitch and presentation skills, and to network with their peers across disciplines - It takes all kinds of knowledge to change the world and thesis research from all disciplines is showcased.
