Student Research Symposia FAQ

The U.S. GLOBE SRS are open to middle and high school student-educator teams (grades 5-12) that are doing research using GLOBE Protocols and/or GLOBE data. Educators may bring multiple student teams (a student team is a group of up to 3 students that worked on the same project). Educators must be registered GLOBE educators. To learn more and become a GLOBE educator, see the Learn About the Program Page

Please continue to follow the Symposia webpages for information regarding the U.S. GLOBE Student Research Symposia and travel funding opportunities. Registration will open in the late winter/early spring.

Yes we can! Subscribe to our mailing list to learn about upcoming webinars, deadlines, and other Symposia information.

Posters should be no more than 36" x 48" (3 x 4 ft). They will either be pinned to a poster easel or attached to a trifold board. 

We recommend between 1-3 students presenting on each poster. 

Travel funding (made possible by NASA) priority will go to under-served and under-represented educator-student teams who do not already participate in science symposia/fairs, are from schools where a majority of students receive free and reduced lunch, and where English is not the first language for many students.  After that, funds will be distributed until they are expended. The Funding application is linked from the main SRS page.

Use this GLOBE map to locate your region. Each SRS is only open to students and educators that are from that region.

Presentation day is business casual. Student presenters will receive a GLOBE polo shirt at the event. For all other days, wear regular school clothing. 

Meals during the event will be provided to all participants.  The events for some regions are held in locations with gift shops. See your region's individual event page for more information.  

The Student Research Symposia are designed as student events. Parents/guardians may be invited to portions of the event at the event organizers' discretion. These sessions will be noted on the program agenda.  

Travel support from the GLOBE U.S. Coordination Office will cover one educator and a team of students. If required by the school district, the travel funding can cover one additional chaperone (e.g., both a male and female chaperone are needed to travel with students). Additional parents/guardians who would like to accompany their student(s) are expected to arrange and purchase their own travel, food, and lodging.
