It is once again time to gear up your curiosity; ignite your scientific imagination; refine your ability to question, examine, and study; and engage in the 2021 GLOBE International Virtual Science Symposium (IVSS). And, keeping in mind the guidelines set by local governments with regard to COVID-19 precautions, this year’s focus is on data analysis! The due date for projects will be 10 March 2021, so mark your calendars.

The IVSS is a way for primary through undergraduate students from all GLOBE countries to showcase their hard work. With GLOBE, students explore the natural world 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.
