WiSys Quick Pitch is a research-focused student pitch competition that inspires you as a student to consider the impact of your research and learn how to effectively communicate it to a general audience. The event is April 13, 2022 from 4:30 to 7 p.m., in the Brown County STEM Innovation Center, Room 137-139. No cost.
Participants have three minutes to impress a panel of judges with your ability to explain the value of their research to society. The top presenters win cash prizes and secure a spot in the Quick Pitch State Final. The competition is open to undergraduate and graduate students. Both basic and applied research projects are welcome.
Students can present research at any stage of development (it does not need to be finished). Beyond the opportunity to compete for a cash prize and increase exposure for research and/or innovative idea, students will: Learn to communicate findings in a way that is easy to understand. Sharpen important communication and presentation skills. Prepare for upcoming research presentations. The WiSys Quick Pitch training and competition teaches participants to make projects accessible for all audiences and across disciplines, which can facilitate collaborations or preparation for large research symposiums like Research in the Rotunda.
