2nd Annual Student Research Exhibition

Goal: Highlight GLOBE student research at the 2013 GLOBE Annual Partner Meeting

Who: GLOBE Student teams recently completing research investigations.

What: The GLOBE Student Research Exhibition is a celebration of student research. Each U.S. Partner may nominate one student project for participation. Each international Country Coordinator may nominate up to three student projects for participation.  Teams of up to three students will share their research project with the GLOBE community during the Annual Partner Meeting (12-16 August 2013) either virtually or in-person.

When: Nominations from Partners will be accepted between 1 - 31 May 2013.  Accepted projects will be notified via email no later than 14 June 2013.

The Student Research Exhibition will take place during the poster sessions of the GLOBE Annual Partner Meeting on Monday, 12 August and Tuesday, 13 August.

Presentations: Student research project presentations will take place during the GLOBE Annual Partner Meeting poster sessions (12th and 13th of August) either virtually or in-person.  All travel for in-person presentations must be provided by the Partner or school.
