Ready for the 2020 IVSS? Join the 30 October Informational Webinar
The 2020 GLOBE International Virtual Science Symposium (IVSS) Informational Webinar will be held on 30 October at 10:00 a.m. MT/12:00 p.m. ET. Amy Barfield, GLOBE Implementation Office (GIO) Education and Outreach, will cover what's new for the 2020 IVSS, and will highlight available resources. If you are unable to join, a recording and slides from the webinar will be posted on the IVSS website.
At the time of the webinar, join here.
GLOBE is working to make the IVSS resources more useful for students and teachers – and have added new resources. Learn more about current research on poster presentations (including some new ideas for creating a poster) and report templates by grade-level.
As a trial this year, GLOBE will be accepting reports in English as well as in Spanish, French, Arabic, and Croatian. All reports should include an English translation in case there are not enough volunteer judges who speak the other languages. (Please help us recruit bilingual and multilingual judges to help us provide feedback on all the projects. GLOBE relies on the community to make this successful!) More information about judging is available here.
