GLOBE Announces 2017 International Virtual Science Fair
The GLOBE Program is pleased to announce the 2017 GLOBE International Virtual Science Fair for students around the world. 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!
The 2017 GLOBE International Virtual Science Fair takes place online, and 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). This 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.
Reports will be due by 03 April 2017; scores and badges will be announced on 15 May 2017.
