This video is from the 2013 CSU Grand Final of the Three Minute Thesis (3MT™).
The 3MT™ is a skills development activity which challenges Research Higher Degree students to explain their research project to a non-specialist audience in just three minutes.
Developed by The University of Queensland (UQ) in 2008, enthusiasm for the 3MT concept and its adoption in numerous universities led to the development of an international competition. 2013 was the first time CSU had entered the 3MT competition.
