Guide to Asking Questions

In order to learn more about a research project, judges and the GLOBE community are encouraged to ask questions that continue the scientific conversation. Each individual student report has an area for comments. This is the place to ask (and answer) questions. Listed below are a few examples of questions to ask about research reports.  This is not intended to be a comprehensive list -- feel free to ask other questions.
