Students "Speak Up!" About Research
The University Libraries' Three Minute Thesis competition served as the inspiration for "Speak Up!" a competition that challenges undergraduate CMU students to discuss weeks of research in three minutes or less. Seventy-five undergraduate students competed in this year's competition on July 12 in front of a panel of judges that included Dean of University Libraries Keith Webster.
Speak Up! was a seminar for the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships (SURF) program, during which students participated in weekly workshops led by faculty and staff members that covered topics such as how to communicate about research in sound bites and the importance of highlighting the novelty of the research.: About us
