2019 GLOBE International Virtual Science Symposium

GLOBE is excited to host the 2019 GLOBE International Virtual Science Symposium (IVSS). The IVSS is a way for primary through undergraduate students from all GLOBE countries to showcase their hard work. With GLOBE, students learn the practices of science through hands-on investigations in their own communities, sparking their curiosity and interest in science. This often leads to inquiries that help solve real-world problems and further understanding of our global environment. Now it's time for your students to show the world what they've learned!

IVSS Informational Webinar:

Dr. Julie Malmberg from the GLOBE Implementation Office hosted an informational webinar about the 2019 GLOBE International Virtual Science Symposium on Thursday, 25 October 2018. The webinar featured an overview of the IVSS and information about the newly updated virtual badges.
