Story: Crossing the Finish Line
Three Minute Thesis
In this annual competition, Ph.D. candidates explain their research in just three minutes with one slide, while learning to hone their science communication skills. Our 2015 NC State winner took second place in the Southeast Regional 3MT competition.
Support for Triangle ComSciCon
For the past two years, the Graduate School has been a sponsor of the Triangle ComSciCon, a science communication workshop for graduate students. Through the two-day workshop series, graduate students learn a variety of science communication skills from presenters representing the Triangle area and beyond.
