U.S. Regional Student Research Symposia

Thank you to all the students, educators, STEM professionals, GLOBE Partners and event hosts that made the 2024 SRS a success!

What are the student research symposia?

Students in grades 5 to 12 can share the results of their hard work in GLOBE research investigations at a GLOBE Student Research Symposium. The symposia offer the chance to discuss research projects with science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) professionals, share ideas and learn from peers, and explore STEM careers. Symposia are held every spring in each of GLOBE's six U.S. regions.

GLOBE alumni, International Science Network members and other national program collaborators are also warmly invited to join their regional symposia.

  • Citing AI in GLOBE Research (pdf) - How to cite AI tools (such as ChatGPT) when used to help students write any portion of their SRS poster.


Funding and registration


ALL event attendees (students, educators, Partners, chaperones, etc.) should individually register for their regional SRS. Registration for the 2024 SRS is now closed.

* All projects must include data collected with GLOBE protocols or from the GLOBE database.*

Travel Funding 

Through generous support from NASA, travel funding is available for educator-student teams.  The Funding Application is now closed.

Funding is only available to educators bringing students to present at an SRS event. Funding priority will go to under-served and under-represented educator-student teams who do not already participate in science symposia/fairs. After that, funds will be distributed until they are expended.

Other ways to communicate GLOBE Research

All GLOBE educators and students are encouraged to enter the GLOBE International Virtual Science Symposium using the science practices and research developed for the Student Research Symposia. Students can also upload their GLOBE Research Reports with the "Student Research Symposium" tag at any time!
