About the Student SymposiumEach Spring semester, MOP holds a symposium for sudents to gain valuable experience and achievement by presenting their skill projects to the MOP community. The symposium is held on a different campus to expose students to other MOP'ers in the University of Hawai'i System.
Students who present on completed projects may satisfy the final report requirement for their MOP certificate, if the presentation is judged of sufficient quality. The symposium is also a means for MOP to showcase this aspect of its program to faculty, administrators, students and the public.
Five "best presentation" awards are made:
- Best Research Paper
- Best Internship
- Best Poster or Portfolio
- The John P. Craven Award (most unique or inspirational)
- The PACON Award (Pacific Congress on Marine Science and Technology), for best presentation bridging marine science and technology with a Pacific focus.
