Want to see more student Planetary Science student involvement? Volunteer today!
There are two types of volunteer programs that everyone is welcome to join.
One is volunteering in AGU-wide events in exchange of complimentary student registration. Descriptions of the positions are written by the AGU staff who request their help. Students help with the Student Lounge, Student Mixer, Student Breakfast, Honors Ceremony, remote poster presentations, and e-Poster surveys.
The other type is volunteering in various fun and creative events within the Planetary Science Session. There may be some complimentary student registration available every year for these activities as well. There are many good ideas and suggestions that are waiting for volunteers, including:
- Planetary science student monthly webinars: about two years ago the Hydrology section started holding webinars during the year so students could give talks to their peers all over the world. These featured a student talk followed by a short talk by a high profile scientist to make it more appealing for people to join. These would be a great addition to events within the Planetary Science Section throughout the year, and would be a fantastic way for students to present their work within the planetary community. Panel discussions (and the like) are also a possibility. If you’re interested in this idea and think you’d like to be in charge of it, please contact Alex (see contact info above)!
- Social events at Fall Meeting: There are a range of activities we could organize for students and early career scientists, ranging from movie nights to dinners to brewery tours. If you have any ideas contact Alex (info above).
