GLOBE Teachers (U.S.): Register Now for the U.S. Regional Science Symposia in Your Region!
Through a grant from the National Science Foundation, students from across the United States have the opportunity to come together at one of six face-to-face regional science symposia to share the results of field investigations using GLOBE Program protocols. The competition grade spans are: grades 5-8 and grades 9-12.
During these two-day events, teachers, students, U.S. partnerships, scientists and alumni from the region are invited to gather and discuss GLOBE student research. These events will include presentation of the student research entries to reviewers, professional development for teachers, and networking and collaboration opportunities for participants.
