Compete in TechTalks 2014

Science is as much a way of communicating, as it is a body of knowledge. TechTalks is a presentation competition that gives students the opportunity to express their passion about science to general audiences. 

The TechTalks competition was created by graduate and undergraduate students from the Georgia Tech School of Physics. It is funded by the Atlanta Science Festival, and will culminate in the spring of 2014. Our goal is to give students an opportunity to practice the important skill of communicating science to general audiences.

This science communication competition has a November 4th registration deadline for the qualifying round.
