MCCCD Student Conference at Estrella Mountain
May 1, 2014
Overview and Purpose
The purpose of the Student Conference is to provide students with the experience of presenting their own work in a formal conference environment. Students are required to work with a mentor and must submit their proposals for presentation through this mentor.
The theme for this year will be "Healthy Body - Healthy Soul: Cultivating Health Inside and Out." We will be looking for student presentations, oral and poster, that concern the cultivation of a healthy attitude towards their lives. This would include, but is certainly not limited to, discussions of physical health, emotional health, nutrition, fitness, body image, obesity, food industry, health care, or any topic that is concerned with health. We are looking to raise awareness of the importance of cultivating health on many different levels.
Students will engage in rigorous undergraduate work with a mentor and present their work in a formal conference environment.
- Students will demonstrate critical and creative thinking by developing an *original work for presentation.
- Students will demonstrate communication mastery through presentation of their *original work.
- Students will demonstrate team work by collaborating with a mentor in the development of this project.
*Original work is work that was created by a student or a group of students through their own effort in the current academic year. Work is considered original even when it is based on the research of others (properly cited) or if it furthers an idea or theme that was created by someone else.
