Poster Information
Abstract: Although there are several fantastic marine science conferences open to the academic community, the Ocean Science Symposium (OSS) is dedicated to high school students. This presentation highlights the interdisciplinary action within the field and the success of peer-2-peer mentorship. Through the Ocean Science Symposium high school students have had an opportunity to increase their ocean literacy and be inspired to engage in ocean science research, education and advocacy. The OSS is a grass-roots event that started two-years ago by Ocean Networks Canada and has nurtured 100s of students’ enthusiasm for marine sciences. The OSS is a two-day event consisting of plenary speakers, a series of round table group discussions (breakout sessions) facilitated by grad students in various marine science fields (biology, chemistry, physics, geology, geography, social sciences and engineering), and hands-on activities. Formal educators have also been invited to participate and are encouraged to learn about the marine sciences and think of new ways to incorporate it into the classroom. Furthermore, this event has also offered opportunities to connect nationally with other organizations and reach students living in their interior.Summary: Through the Ocean Science Symposium high school students have had an opportunity to increase their ocean literacy and be inspired to engage in ocean science research, education and advocacy.Report abuse »
