Information for Student Mentors

Student MentorA student mentor is required to supervise the student while working on his or her research project. A mentor must be a faculty member of an accredited college or high school. Your supervision will include assisting the student in conducting research and/or creating a research proposal, creating the oral presentation or poster and ensuring that the student properly registers for and attends the ShORE 2019 event.

As a mentor, you should:

  • Remember, this is the first research experience for many of these students; your positive encouragement is greatly appreciated!
  • Accept only a student to mentor if you can spend significant time with them.
  • Meet regularly, at least once every 2 weeks to monitor their progress.
  • Assign readings to help increase their knowledge of the subject.
  • Encourage students to self-manage their projects.
  • Encourage students to see the connections of their work as viable research endeavors to advance the community’s knowledge of the Indian River Lagoon and its drainage basin.
  • Be supportive and provide validation for the hard work your student is expending. Unsolicited assurance can help instill confidence.

The all-day event is free, but registration is required. Online registration ends November 13, 2019. ShORE 2019 is asking for your support to reduce our carbon footprint.
