GLOBE students doing protocols

The 2017 GLOBE International Virtual Science Symposium (IVSS) is now accepting student reports. Reports will be accepted from 03 January through 03 April. To help in this scientific and educational endeavor, check out these resources, rubrics, FAQs, and the new Upload Tool.  

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.
