Talking Points

To register for Let’s Torque submit a 300-word (max) outline of your STEM idea for your presentation. This can be in paragraph or dot-point form.

What should the STEM idea be about?

  • Based off STEM research
  • Applied in a new and unique way

Points to hit

  • The science behind the solution
  • The potential impact of the STEM research

This can be done in a paragraph or dot-point form.

Examples of ideas from previous years include:

  • Mealworms that break down plastic

  • Using the gut microbiome to help with autism

  • Check out the videos of the 2017 Grand Finalists for some more ideas*

Tips

  • Let’s Torque is about communication, not innovation, so it does not need to be an idea you have come up with yourself. It should just be something out there that gets you excited!

  • Target your STEM communication at a generalist audience. The general public, politicians, investors, even your grandma should be able to grasp your key points!

  • If you have any questions, feel free to contact us. We are happy to help!

*Please note that the speech requirements have changed slightly from 2017 to 2018. Participants are no longer required to discuss economic and social/environmental impacts of their solution in Australia.
