United States Regional Student Research Symposia: 27 April 2017 – 03 June 2017
Through a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF), students from across the United States have the opportunity to come together at one of six face-to-face regional science symposia (formerly regional science fairs) to share the results of field investigations using GLOBE Program protocols. The competition grade spans are: grades 5-8 and grades 9-12.
Leading up to the science symposia, GLOBE teachers can attend live webinars (or view the archive) providing professional development on field investigations and enhancing scientific practices of the natural scientists in classrooms.
All GLOBE teachers and students are encouraged to enter the GLOBE International Virtual Science Symposium (IVSS) in April using the science practices and research developed during this project timeframe. Webinars and teacher blogs will be posted for all teachers to view as they prepare students to enter the 2017 Virtual Science Symposium.
For the latest timeline, and to stay informed on science symposia developments, please follow this page.
