Three Minute Paper (3MP) Competition

What is the 3MP?

Three Minute Paper (3MP) is an exciting competition open to undergraduate Trent students completing an honours seminar, an honours thesis, or a major project in any discipline. The 3MP competition challenges undergraduates to present their work to others, in a clear, concise, and engaging manner. Participants have three minutes to explain their research from one major assignment in an upper year course. 3MP challenges students to balance complexity and depth with clarity and concision as they explain their research question, their findings, and its relevance to the Trent community; participants can use up to three PowerPoint slides as visual aids to support their talk.
