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.
