Let's Talk Science Competition

Let's Talk Science Competition

What to expect 

A fast-paced competition to crown the best presentation - presenters will have 3 minutes and only 1(!) prop: a slide, an item, etc, to deliver a talk on a physics or research-related subject of their choice. Prizes for the Best Talk and the People's Choice Award will be awarded on Friday during the TRIUMF Users Group meeting. This event will be kicked off with a TED Talk on gravitational waves by Jess McIvor, UBC Physics and Astronomy faculty.
