3M Talks

Amherst College Science Center

At the end of every SURF session, the fellows gather and present their research. The 2020 remote SURF experience was quite different. With summer researchers located around the world, it was impossible to completely replicate these culminating presentations over Zoom. Instead, the program coordinators tasked students with sharing their summer work in just 3 minutes.

Given the success of the SURF 3 Minute Research Talks, this project was extended to all members of the Amherst College community conducting research. Students engaging in research outside of Amherst and professors took the challenge of sharing nuanced research in an accessible manner in just three minutes.

Here are some of those videos, which concisely explain the research of the Amherst College community.
