Ignite MSU is a newly unveiled novel program from the MSU Museum CoLab Studio. Its primary objective is to empower students to articulate their research more effectively. MSU Museum CoLab Studio is seeking ten passionate MSU students, from any academic level or field, to present at the inaugural Ignite event on Thursday, November 9.
The Ignite format offers a distinctive method to succinctly communicate ideas: a 5-minute presentation using 20 slides that advance automatically every 15 seconds. Originating in San Francisco in 2006, this innovative approach has since been adopted in over 350 cities across six continents. The goal is to have speakers who not only educate but also inspire and engage the audience in a lively learning experience. Notably, prior experience in public speaking or stage presentations is not a prerequisite. All selected speakers will benefit from a research communication workshop ahead of the main event, equipping them to deliver a compelling narrative.
We encourage our undergraduate and graduate students to submit their talk proposals via this link: https://msumuseum.submittable.com/submit/253586/ignite-talks-msu-speaker-form-2023. Please note, the submission window closes on September 18th. Successful candidates will be informed by the close of September.
