Students from across the United States have the opportunity to come together at one of six face-to-face regional Student Research Symposia (SRS) to share the results of field investigations using GLOBE Program protocols or data from the GLOBE database.

What did 2017 SRS Participants leave knowing?

"[The scientific process] doesn't seem scary or impossible anymore."

"There are lots of careers in science, and there are a lot of other people interested in it."

"If I try very hard and work hard I can do a lot of different things that I thought were unlikely I could accomplish."

Local GLOBE Alumni are warmly invited to the Science Symposia, along with members of the GLOBE International Science Network (GISN) and other national program collaborators. 

All GLOBE teachers and students are encouraged to enter the GLOBE International Virtual Science Symposium in March using the science practices and research developed during this project timeframe.
