Why do it?

This event is fun, sociable and rewarding. To quote some competitors :

  • "Just do it. It's a lot of fun and you meet some really cool people."
  • "You spend more time procrastinating than what preparing your 3MT will take you."
  • "...[it] makes you remember why you got into [your research] in the first place and essentially provides a refreshed/positive/proud outlook.
