MNYI Event 2023
The Minnesota Youth Institute event will be held in-person on May 17, 2023.
At the event, students will present their research paper findings to experts in small roundtable discussions. Each group will usually have 6-8 students and 2-3 experts. Each student will have three minutes to present their solution followed by three minutes of Q&A. This is an opportunity for students to share their ideas with experts from across the state, learn from their peers, network, and have a great time! The general MNYI agenda can be referenced to provide an idea of the event schedule.
