The scoring rubrics for the 2017 GLOBE International Virtual Science Sympoium (IVSS) are open for comments through 31 August 2016.

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.  

IVSS Timeline:

  • Rubric comment period 01 August 2016 - 31 August 2016
  • Reports and presentations due by 03 April 2017
  • Scores and badges announced on 15 May 2017
