Oceans 2005 MTS/IEEE - "One Ocean"

Student Program

OCEANS 2005 MTS/IEEE provides a first-hand look at a variety of student programs so that our attendees can see the next generation of ocean scientists, engineers, and technologists in action. We want to thank our sponsors for their commitment to education and for making these opportunities a reality.

The following programs are listed as part of the Education Program:

Underwater Robots Invade Oceans 2005!!!

National Ocean Sciences Bowl (NOSB ®)

Student Poster Program

The Conference Committee greatly appreciates the sponsorship by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) for the Student Poster Program at Oceans 2005 MTS/IEEE. Their ongoing support of this program through many previous conferences has provided special opportunities and encouragement for the next generation of the ocean community. They will make a difference in the careers of these young professionals as they have for the many who have preceded them in this highly regards program that recognizes scientific and technical excellence.

Program Information and Participants

We have accepted 24 students from high schools through graduate levels and from around the world for our Student Poster Program. These students have written technical papers that will be included in the conference proceedings and will present posters describing their work. Judges will evaluate the student’s work and prizes (funded by ONR) will be awarded.  Participants in this program will also have the opportunity to visit ocean science and technology sites in the area and possibly to visit the U.S. Capitol to meet with leaders in U.S. Ocean Policy.
