Caltech Library hosted its first Three Minute Thesis 3MT® competition on April 15, 2016.

Created by the University of Queensland, the contest challenges final year PhD students to explain their research in an engaging and clear 3-minute talk, intended for a non-specialist audience. Participants are allowed to use a single, static Power Point slide, shown at the beginning of the talk. Springer Nature generously provided $9,000 in prize money.
