Students and Early Careers Researchers – we’ll “give you a minute” for you to tell us your research story……..
Scientific communication is important. We all need to relay our important research findings to the scientific and wider community clearly and concisely. We usually don’t have long to capture people’s attention, so we are giving you a minute (and not a second more!).
You can tell your research story in any way you wish, the more creative the better! The judges are looking to see how your research is contributing to solving a specific issue or problem. So, don’t spend all of your time telling us about the issue – we want to know what you are doing about it and how you are achieving your research goals.
If you are registered for the full conference, then you can enter into this competition and submit your 1-minute video. There are two streams:

The WA branch of AAAS is pleased to be supporting the Student Video Competition. Students are an integral part of the AAAS conference, and animal science more widely. The WA branch committee look forward to seeing the work being done by the next generation of scientists, and recognising the efforts made in communicating their work through video.
