Mitchell Meyer wowed the judges to capture first place in the 2017 College of Arts & Sciences Undergraduate Three-Minute Thesis (3MT) competition, held March 30 inside the OSU Physical Science building, and hosted by the A&S Student Council.
Meyer, of Wichita, Kan., won a $1,250 scholarship for his presentation, “Investigating the Energy of Musical Chords.”
The top five finishers were all awarded scholarships beginning at $500. Other winners include:
- 2nd Place: Katherine Dzurilla (Owasso, Okla.)
- 3rd Place: KatyAnn Dudley (Sperry, Okla.)
- 4th Place: Daniel McLeod (Tulsa, Okla.)
- 5th Place: Zachary Helms (McKinney, Texas)
Begun by the University of Queensland (Australia), 3MT contests challenges students to present a thesis with three minutes to speak and a single, static visual slide, to a panel of judges with no background in the student’s area of study. While traditionally open only to graduate students, the College of Arts & Sciences’ Student Council hosted their first 3MT event for undergrads in 2015.
