ShORE 2018 is a showcase for high school senior and undergraduate student researchers to present their mentor-approved STEM research proposals or findings to other scientists and the community. Each student must have a faculty mentor (please see Information for Mentors) and may choose to participate in one of two submission categories:
All research must be conducted within the Indian River Lagoon or its drainage basin. Research must have been completed since January 2017. All submissions must have a project title and include an abstract. The abstract should be a one-paragraph, 250-word maximum description of your project or proposal. Helpful hints on how to write a good abstract.
All submissions will be judged in each of two submission categories (Oral Presentation or Poster) and cash prizes awarded in the amounts of $300, $200, and $100 to the first-, second-, and third-place winners, respectively. In addition, the public will be choosing the People's Choice Award. A number of scholarships will also be awarded.
Registration deadline for Student Presenters is November 9, 2018.
Registration for Group Members and Observers is November 28, 2018.
Registration for students will include a reusable water bottle.
Note: If there is more than one name associated with your presentation or poster, the first person to be listed will be defined as the Presenter and all others will be defined as Group Members. Please remind all group members to register individually.
Presenters are students who will be presenting their research findings or proposal via oral presentation or poster; Group Members are students who worked with the Presenter on the research project (all students listed on a poster are encouraged to be present for and participate in the poster session). Observers are students who want to attend ShORE 2018 in support of their peers.
