Virtual Student Conference Overview

GLOBE International Virtual Science Symposium

The International Virtual Science Symposium (IVSS) provides students with the chance to share their research, discuss that research with their peers, earn virtual badges, and receive feedback from a team of STEM professionals. An annual, GLOBE-organized event, the IVSS is hosted entirely online and is open to students from around the world. Each event focuses on a new theme, fostering a wide variety of student-led research from year to year.

To see what students have worked on in the past, check out our previous symposia in the navigation menu on the left. You can also view our collection of IVSS statistics to find out more about participating countries across the globe.
