U.S. Teachers – Join the Science Research Symposia (SRS) Webinar “Conducting Field Investigations” TODAY
U.S. Teachers: A “Conducting Field Investigations” webinar will be held today, 24 October, at 7:00 p.m. ET. Whether or not you participate in the U.S. Student Research Symposia (SRS), this webinar can help you conduct field investigations with your students. During the webinar, you will see examples from past student projects and will be able to ask questions. To join the webinar, use this link.
At the SRS, students from across the United States have the opportunity to come together at one of six face-to-face regional symposia to share the results of field investigations using GLOBE program protocols. As in previous years, the SRS are open to all U.S. GLOBE students and teachers.

Teachers: Have a Question about the SRS?
Do you have a question about the SRS? Then just email the SRS Teacher Hotline. You will be connected with an experienced GLOBE teacher who can discuss your question over a brief phone call. Simply provide your name, phone number, the grade-level you teach, and the best time to reach you, along with your question.
Teachers: Can You Help a New SRS Teacher?
Have you conducted research in your classroom? Attended a GLOBE SRS? Then please join the SRS Teacher Hotline! Through the hotline, teachers can ask questions about the research process or the SRS, which will be fielded to experienced teachers (i.e. you) who will have a short phone conversation with them to discuss and answer questions. If you are interested in being a part of the team, fill out this brief form.
