30 March: 2020 IVSS Informational Judging Webinar
The GLOBE Program is looking for volunteers to help score projects for the 2020 GLOBE International Virtual Science Symposium (IVSS). The IVSS is a way for students from all over the world to showcase their hard work. With GLOBE, students learn the practices of science through hands-on investigations in their own communities, sparking their curiosity and interest in science. This often leads to inquiries that help solve real-world problems and further understanding of our global environment.
Volunteer judges are STEM professionals, teachers, graduate students, and other interested community members who will assist in scoring student projects. Reports are accepted through 10 March, and scoring will begin on 30 March. Judging consists of filling out a Google form with your scores and feedback; and it takes approximately 15-30 minutes to assess each project.

There will be an informational judging webinar on Monday, 30 March (8:00 a.m. EST/1:00 p.m. UTC).
