Southwest SRS

Teachers, students, U.S. partners, scientists and alumni from the Southwest region (AZ, CO, KS, NM, OK, TX, UT) are invited to gather and discuss GLOBE student research projects at the fifth annual Southwest Student Research Symposium (SRS). This event will include presentations of student research, professional development for teachers, and networking and collaboration opportunities for all participants.



The United States GLOBE Student Research Symposia (SRS) will not be held this spring due to COVID-19. The SRS leadership team is currently discussing other ways that students could share their GLOBE research. The United States GLOBE Office staff are thinking daily about all of you and are committed to continuing the SRS in future years. Be well and please reach out with ideas on how the GLOBE Partners and the U.S. GLOBE Office can help you #doGLOBE!

Please check with the SRS webpage for the most current information. If you have any questions about the research process or bringing students to the SRS, please use the SRS Teacher Hotline
