Virginia Tech's Center for Communicating Science presents The Seventh Annual Nutshell Games on Wednesday, February 8, 2023 at the Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech.

Please join us for the Nutshell Games, the annual research presentation competition hosted by Virginia Tech's Center for Communicating Science. Cheer for 30 graduate student researchers as they each explain their work in a mere 90 seconds, onstage at the Moss Art Center! A panel of judges that includes a 7th grader will pick five winners to receive cash prizes.

This fun and friendly event will feature speakers from a wide range of research areas. Topics include the mysteries of personality, self-driving cars, the challenges of weight stigma, threats to bees, computer hijacking, hidden hellbenders, approaches to disease, and much more. The speakers need an enthusiastic audience, and that's you!

Admission is free and all are welcome.
