U.S. Regional Student Research Symposia
Through a grant from the National Science Foundation, students from across the United States have the opportunity to come together at one of six face-to-face regional science symposia (formerly regional science fairs) to share the results of field investigations using GLOBE Program protocols. The grade spans for project review are: grades 5-8 and grades 9-12.
Leading up to the science symposia, GLOBE teachers can view archived webinars, teacher blogs, and participate in open office hours, providing professional development on field investigations and enhancing scientific practices of the natural scientists in classrooms. To stay informed on science symposia developments, please follow this page. For more information on the timeline, registration deadlines, etc. please view our calendar.
Teachers, if you are interested in attending with a group of students, please indicate your interest and apply for funding through this Google Form by February 27th, 2017. Funding decisions will be made by March 27th, 2017. If you would like to subscribe to our mailing list to learn about upcoming webinars, deadlines, and other Symposia information, please click here.
All GLOBE teachers and students are encouraged to enter the GLOBE International Virtual Science Symposium in April using the science practices and research developed during this project timeframe. Webinars and teacher blogs will be posted for all teachers to view as they prepare students to enter the 2017 Virtual Science Symposium.
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.
