Join Today's (12 October) 2023 International Virtual Science Symposium Information Webinar

GLOBE students working on research

The GLOBE Program is hosting the 2023 International Virtual Science Symposium. The IVSS is a way for primary through undergraduate students from all GLOBE countries to showcase their research. With GLOBE, students learn the practices of science through hands-on investigations in their own communities, which sparks their curiosity and interest in science. This often leads to inquiries that help solve real-world problems and further understanding of our global environment.  

The theme for the 2023 IVSS is “Global Connections: Investigating Earth as A System Together.” Engineering Solutions for a Changing Climate.” Students are encouraged to use, and explore, the Earth as a System Protocol Bundles as tools to investigate their environmental issue – and to present their research in creative ways (such as through storytelling tools including video, online media, storyboards, drawings, and more​​​​.)
