ED009:
Ocean Scientists of Tomorrow: K-12 Student Session

Submit an Abstract to this Session

Session ID#: 29678

Session Description:
K-12 students are producing quality ocean scientific research. These students are exposed to Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) practices through educational programs and are often involved with investigating Earth, space and ocean systems. Sharing this research at an international scientific conference is a fundamental component of their STEAM education and beneficial to the future of science by bringing the scientists of tomorrow into our scientific community today. The goal of this session is to give K-12 students a platform to present their research to scientists, educators and peers in order to enhance best practice research and scientific communication skills. K-12 students throughout the world are encouraged to connect with conveners to submit their abstracts well in advance of the abstract deadline. The lead author on the abstract must be a K-12 student. All accepted abstracts will be presented at a special poster session.
