High school, undergraduate, and graduate students can present at the Ocean Sciences Meeting and receive valuable feedback from experts in their field. The exposure to emerging science and the opportunity to network and learn about career paths are what makes the Ocean Sciences Meeting worth attending—whether you’re presenting or not!
Meet Your Student Organizers
Meet and give feedback to the student organizers of this year’s Ocean Sciences Meeting!
Tuesday 5:00 – 6:00: Amy Burgess in the student lounge; Thursday 12:30 – 5:30: Sam Wilson at the Scripps Exhibition Booth; Thursday 5:00 – 6:00: Paige Martin in the student lounge.
The Ocean Sciences Student Mentoring Program will pair a subset of student attendees with more experienced attendees for an in-person mentoring experience. Learn more about the meeting mentoring program.
Student and Early Career Events
There are several events specifically for students and early career scientists at the meeting, many of which include free food! Learn more about the various events.
Student “Pop-Up” Talks
Pop-Up sessions are exciting sessions entirely created by and organized by students! The goal is for students to develop an interdisciplinary session that will feature students giving a five minute “pop-up” talk about how their research impacts society, vision of the future of ocean sciences, or experience as a student of a particular continent, country, race, gender, etc. More information!
