Undergraduate Student Speaking Contest – MS&T’11

Have you held a local speaking contest on campus yet? Each Material Advantage Chapter may conduct speaking contests at the local level to determine who will advance to the National Speaking Contest at MS&T 2011. The Material Advantage Undergraduate Student Speaking Contest is an opportunity for undergraduate students to present technical papers and to improve their presentation skills. Presentations can relate to any aspect of materials science and engineering. The National Contest at MS&T will be held on Sunday, October 16 in Columbus, Ohio, USA.
