The Three-Minute Story
March 2nd, Virtual | March 3rd, Science 1015
The goal of this workshop is to practice oral research communication skills by crafting and delivering an elevator pitch: a three-minute research story that communicates some sort of research in a short, concise, but engaging manner to a specific audience. The intent of an elevator pitch is to get someone interested in what you have to say and to engage in further discussions, not to tell them everything there is to know.
