And I won! My presentation was titled "Diagnosis: Fossil", and I spoke about the CSI aspects of looking for clues at a 98 million year old crime scene. All of the presentations this year from the School of Biological Sciences were excellent, I had a lot of stellar competition! I'll be heading off to the UQ Faculty of Science 3MT Finals next Thursday, so wish me luck!
