Introduction to the "Pecha Kucha Challenge"
New

Mon 29 Jan 2018

Description

For PhD students interested in presenting their research topics in the Department of Engineering's two Science Festival events this year which will be on the dates below:

Pecha Kucha Challenge March 17th Saturday, 12-2pm, main site. March 24th Saturday, 2-4.00pm, IfM.

In this event, postgraduate students enrolled for a PhD in Engineering will take on the challenge of sharing their research with a science festival audience in just 6min 40 sec, using the Pecha Kucha technique which involves presenting using 20 slides, each showing for just 20 sec.

Participants on previous events commented:

"Speaking dynamically during 6m40s is a great experience. Translating complex concepts to a general public helped me to access my research through a more tangible perspective. I definitely learnt a lot during this project."

"The exercise of communicating my research to a non-technical audience was a very useful one to undergo. It forced me to think differently about my research, and that experience has helped me to do a better job of presenting in a technical setting as well."

Target audience

Open to PhD students in all years
