2017 IVSS Webinar Graphic

Are you participating in the 2017 International Virtual Science Symposium (IVSS), but missed the most recent webinar? The webinar, hosted by Dr. Julie Malmberg of the GLOBE Implementation Office on 19 October, is now available online. Watch it today!

This informational webinar covers the instructions, badges, rubrics, and guidelines for the science symposium. The slides are also available to download on the science symposium page ( or by clicking here.

The 2017 IVSS takes place online, and K-16 students from any GLOBE country may participate. GLOBE students use the GLOBE data they entered into the database and should collaborate with scientists, including STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) professionals who are part of the GLOBE International STEM Network (GISN).

The IVSS is a great opportunity for students to practice the skills they've learned through their involvement in The GLOBE Program and apply them to address real-world problems. It can be hard work, but the excitement that comes with discovery and new insights makes it worthwhile.

Every project that is submitted will be hosted on the Student Research Reports section and students will receive virtual badges to reward them for their work. There is no limit to the number of entries per student or per school and there is no limit to the number of students per project.
