Miss the Informational Webinar for the 2023 GLOBE International Virtual Science Symposium (IVSS)? It has been recorded and is now available.

The IVSS is a way for primary through undergraduate students from all GLOBE countries to showcase their research. The theme for this year’s journey into science and research is: “Global Connections: Investigating Earth as a System Together.”

This year, which is the tenth year of the IVSS, 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.
