The annual Threesis Academic Challenge, exclusively for master’s students in GSAS, is one of the most exciting events of the academic year, and it’s happening this weekend.
Saturday, April 11
4:00p (doors open at 3:30)
60 Washington Square South — Kimmel Center
Room 401 — Eisner & Lubin Auditorium
RSVP via this link.
After weeks of preparation and a semi-finals round, twelve competitors will describe their work in front of a live (even boisterous) audience and a panel of three expert judges. The catch: competitors must use accessible language, a single image, and they may only talk for three minutes. They are evaluated on their grasp of the subject, and on how clearly and effectively they communicate their work.
There are $3,000 in prizes at stake, but there’s also an Audience Choice Award — and that’s where we come in. Our enthusiasm can make all the difference in the outcome of the event.
There are more than a dozen Draper students involved in this year’s Threesis. Let’s give them our support on Saturday! [For those of you who have not yet attended a Threesis, Saturday is also a perfect opportunity to learn more and to ponder the possibility of your own participation in the future ]
