We are drawing closer to the start of the 16th GLOBE Annual Meeting. For the first time in GLOBE history, the meeting will be hosted by a GLOBE Partner, The National Center for STEM Education at St. Catherine University in St. Paul, Minnesota, USA.
The event will commence with a welcome reception on Sunday evening, 15 July, and will continue through Friday, 20 July, with speakers, presentations, field studies and for the first time, student participation through the GLOBE Student Science Symposium.
Approximately 115 members of the GLOBE community will be there. A draft of the agenda, a listing of presentation proposals and more information is available on the meeting webpage.
