3MT® is not an exercise in trivializing or ‘dumbing-down’ research, but forces students to consolidate their ideas and discoveries to become transferable after graduation. For the 2020 3MT® Competition, each college will hold a competition in order to decide upon two finalists who will advance to the University of Guelph 3MT® Final Competition on April 3rd in the University Centre, 442.
