Congratulations to Kate Holland and Jennifer Wurtzel who swept the pool at the College of Sciences final for the 3 Minute Thesis competition.

Kate took out first place for the College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, while Jennifer won second place and the people's choice award. If there was a third place award it probably would have gone to our other RSES competitor, Eleanor Mare. Well done to all three of our 3MT representatives on their outstanding achievements.

The Three Minute Thesis is an international competition for higher degree research students to showcase their research. Students have to talk about what their research is and why it is important in plain language for three minutes, with only a single PowerPoint slide.

Kate and Jennifer will now compete in the ANU Grand Finals, on the 14th September. Register here for tickets.
