Planning on participating in the 2020 GLOBE International Virtual Science Symposium (IVSS)? Reports are due 10 March! The IVSS is an exciting 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.
