About the 2023 IVSS

The IVSS is a way for primary through undergraduate students from all GLOBE countries to showcase their research and hard work. With GLOBE, students learn the practices of science through hands-on investigations in their own communities, which sparks their curiosity and interest in science.

The theme of the 2023 IVSS is “Global Connections: Investigating Earth as a System Together.” This year, students are encouraged to explore the Earth as a System Protocol Bundles and use them as tools to investigate their environmental research questions. This year’s theme also has similarities to NASA's Year of Open Science and inspires students to make connections with other students and scientific explorations around the world. Students are also advised to present their research in creative ways, for example, through storytelling tools including video, online media, storyboards, drawings, and more.
