SRS 2020 COVID-19 Update

Updated: Jul 22

Due to the rapidly changing circumstances surrounding COVID-19, YLACES and GLOBE have decided to postpone the 2020 Student Research Symposia. We are hopeful that the in-person SRS will still happen, but it is important to listen to health experts and do what we can to prevent the spread of this illness.

One of the most important parts of the SRS is that students from all backgrounds get to meet and talk with STEM professionals in person, so we aim to still have this experience in 2020. We are looking to postpone the SRS to the fall, so please continue to look at our website, GLOBE's website, and both organizations' social media in order to stay updated.

Per the GLOBE March update email, please email Jennifer Bourgeault at with the following pieces of information:

(1) if you would be willing and able to attend a fall SRS (October or November 2020) with your students or not; and,

(2) if your students have the resources to continue their research and submit a poster to the GLOBE website with an SRS tag. 

As the situation continues to change rapidly, we will continue to update our online platforms.
