The International Virtual Science Symposium is an opportunity for GLOBE students to showcase their research to the rest of the community. Projects are judged by prestigious scientists across dozens of GLOBE nations. Students are eligible for stipends and GLOBE badges

Students may submit a project on any topic, but they are encouraged to align their research with the year’s theme.

The theme for the 2024 IVSS is "Climate Investigations: Understanding Earth as a System." Check back on this page in October 2023 for more information about the event!
