- Student Pacific Islander Networking
OSM 2022 is working with the University of Hawaii SOEST Maile Mentoring Bridge Program to provide opportunities for local students to network with scientists outside of Hawai’i. The goal of this event is to facilitate professional connections between established career scientists and marginalized early career scientists. Senior scientists will meet with student Pacific Islanders – both undergraduate and post-baccalaureate. This event is scheduled for Tuesday, March 1st from 1245-1345.Providing this important resource gives a sponsor excellent visibility and support of future aquatic scientists.
- Music Bingo Night
This fun activity is designed for students and early career participants to unwind after a day of talks and posters. Combining some music trivia and a little luck, this involves identifying a song, marking it down on the board – and lots of crossed fingers.
- Trivia Night
This is a fun virtual trivia night (or afternoon/morning depending on your time zone) for all who wish to participate. General trivia will be the arena, which means no marine science in sight! The questions will also be friendly to an international audience, sorry no categories about American television, states, history, etc.
Scheduling note: Times given are in US Eastern Standard Time Zone. The schedule is being finalized with specific dates and times being added as soon as possible for events that do not have these indicated.
