This event followed on the success of the 2nd Middle East Geoscience Student Symposium to continue inspiring the geoscientists of tomorrow and accelerate 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 9th 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, 27 April 2015.

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 New Orleans for SEG's 85th Annual Meeting & Exposition in October 2015.
