Can you do it?
The MSU Museum CoLab Studio is looking for ten passionate students at Michigan State to each give an Ignite talk on their research! You can be any type or level of student at MSU, doing a project in any field of research. Ignite talks are a creative way to communicate one big idea in 5 minutes flat, using only 20 slides that automatically advance every 15 seconds. We want speakers who will connect with the audience as they amuse, educate, enlighten, and inspire them. Previous public speaking or stage experience is not required! All selected speakers will participate in a research communication workshop prior to the big day, to help them hone their story to ignite the audience. 

Submit Your Idea Here

Note: Friday, September 13, 2024 is the last day to submit for a talk. 


The MSU Museum CoLab Studio is excited to present the 3rd edition of Ignite Talks MSU, featuring the fast-paced stories of ten MSU student research rockstars. We can’t wait for you to be delighted and inspired by the ideas, passion, and knowledge at Michigan State. Watch videos from previous Ignite Talks MSU on our Interactive Media page.

Admission is free, but seating is limited. Pre-registration is recommended.
