Special Student “Pop-Up” Talks

ED31F: Water Sciences Pop-Ups

11 December 2013, 8:00 AM – 10:00 AM   Moscone South Room 301

The Water Sciences Pop-Up is an exciting new event entirely created by and organized by students!  This interdisciplinary session will feature students giving a 5 minute “pop-up” talk about their research or vision of the future of water sciences.

The goal of this session is for students at an early career stage to gain practice communicating their research to other scientists and the general public.  Students were encouraged to submit an additional media component, of their own work, highlighting the theme of their abstract. Examples of media include, video (up to 1 minute long), photo, mural, or other creative art form.

Come support your fellow students, learn something new, and become inspired to host your own Pop-Up Session at next year’s Fall Meeting!
