Students for Ocean Solutions

Session ID#: 92164

Session Description:
This summer, NOAA Hollings Scholars participated in ocean-related internships at offices all across the U.S. and presented their projects at NOAA’s annual Hollings Symposium. These scholars had the opportunity to learn about the impactful summer work their peers completed, but, importantly, they were able to connect and collaborate. Learning about projects led by other students from communities across the country provided inspiration and encouragement to develop new ideas. This Town Hall, inspired by the powerful collaboration fostered during the Hollings Symposium, aims to facilitate an exchange of ocean-related information among all students attending the Ocean Sciences Meeting. Specifically, our speakers will share their how their ocean projects are saving our oceans and contribute to scientific understanding. This session, moderated by Mark Haver (Sustainable Ocean Alliance Ocean Leader from Florida Southern College), will showcase and discuss different ocean projects, research, and scholarship opportunities from fellow Hollings Scholars: Madison Pickett (MIT); Carina Burroughs (University of Miami); Sarah Glover (Rice University); Mia Silverberg (UC Berkeley); and Jen Magi (Florida State University). Sharing these ideas and projects will not just build information among students about how to tackle issues threatening our oceans, but will also help students create a meaningful network with each other.
