2nd Middle East Geoscience Student Symposium
Date 26-29 April 2014

Sultan Qaboos University

Muscat, Oman

This event followed on the success of the 1st SEG Student Day and Challenge Bowl to continue inspiring the geoscientists of tomorrow and accelerating their growth. While attending this event, participants advanced their existing knowledge, discussed opportunities, expanded their horizons, and shared their expertise with their peers from different universities and with professionals from industry and academia.

SEG Middle East Challenge Bowl

The 8th Annual Middle East Challenge Bowl invited eight teams of two students each (graduate or undergraduate) from any university or college to go head-to-head on Monday, 28 April 2014.

This offered an excellent opportunity for geosciences students to display their geophysical and geological knowledge in this fun, rapid fire, push-the-buzzer, who-can-answer-first contest. Winners represented the Middle East and received an expenses-paid trip to Denver for SEG's 84th Annual Meeting & Exposition in October 2014.
