2017 IVSS Graphic

The comment period for the scoring rubrics for the 2017 GLOBE International Virtual Science Sympoium is now closed. The rubrics will be posted this month.

The 2017 International Virtual Science Symposium ( 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:

  • Reports and presentations due by 03 April 2017
  • Scores and badges announced on 15 May 2017

Important Note: Although you can submit your project in a language other than English, it will not be scored. We will only be able to score projects submitted in English. Have other questions about the IVSS? Check out the FAQs.
