SOT encourages students to pursue careers in toxicology, and one of the ways is by inviting high school students to participate in a special research poster display during the 2013 Annual Meeting near the SOT Pavilion in ToxExpo. The SOT K–12 Subcommittee asks you to help us recruit participants. This year we have travel funding to support a number of high school students; amount of funding will depend upon distance traveled.
Perhaps you have a child, neighbor, or acquaintance involved in research who might be a candidate to participate. Students get the opportunity to practice their presentation skills and to explore a scientific meeting with an SOT mentor. We are recruiting students who might have had a science fair project or were engaged in summer research in toxicology-related fields. The student will submit basic information (see the recruitment flyer) by February 12 and their presentations will be scheduled for two hours on either Tuesday, March 12, or Wednesday, March 13.
If you are interested in mentoring these presenters, please provide your contact information and time preference. Mentors greet the student at their poster time. The same or alternate mentor may provide a brief tour and introduction to the SOT Annual Meeting either before or after the student’s scheduled poster time.
