K-12 Youth Sessions: K-12 Youth Ocean Science Research Presentations I Posters

Session ID#: 85190

Session Description:
K-12 students are producing quality ocean and water/earth scientific research throughout the world via in-school or after-school programs. These students are readily exposed to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) practices and are involved with adults and/or senior scientists to investigate earth and ocean processes including testing hypotheses and observing the environment. Sharing their research at an international scientific conference is beneficial to them, their peers, educators and attending scientists. K-12 students who are involved in such ocean and water/earth research as lead author or co-author are encouraged to participate. The goal of this session is to give K-12 students a platform to present their ocean and water/earth related research to scientists, educators and peers in order to network and gain feedback on their presentation and research, and join the ever-growing network of ocean science researchers. K-12 students are encouraged to choose an oral presentation or poster presentation format.
