Is it Hot in Here? The 2nd Multidisciplinary Heat Continues to Impress

The 3MT multidisciplinary heats continued on Wednesday with 11 more contestants competing for a spot in the semi-finals on March 14.

From world-changing bacteria to illustrating the human genome via Harry Potter, from supporting learners in a multicultural classroom to detecting falls for elderly people using WI-FI, the research being conducted on campus is nothing short of amazing.

The disciplines represented in this heat included political science, chemical and biological engineering electrical and computer engineering, mechanical engineering, human development, learning and culture, experimental medicine,  medical genetics, botany, and microbiology and immunology.

The semi-finals will be held Tuesday, March 14 at 1p.m. and 3p.m. respectively in the ballroom of Thea Koerner House, 6371 Crescent Road. This event is open to the public so I hope to see you there!
