Student Research Symposia
Announcement on the 2022 GLOBE Student Research Symposia
The U.S. GLOBE Regional Student Research Symposia (SRS) give students and educators an opportunity to share the results of their GLOBE scientific research projects, get feedback from knowledgeable reviewers, engage in peer review, and participate in experiential learning activities. After a discussion with the sponsors regarding the current state of COVID-19, and looking through the feedback from teachers who normally attend the events, the U.S. GLOBE Office has made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person regional 2022 SRS.
The U.S. GLOBE Office will be supporting in-person events. The U.S. GLOBE Office, with support from NASA and YLACES, is accepting proposals of no more than two pages for local, in-person, one-day SRS.

Beginning in 2019, YLACES began sponsoring six annual GLOBE Student Research Symposia (SRS) that provide students with the opportunity to present their research and receive feedback from both peers and professionals. The goal is to build students' scientific and research abilities. Students presenting their research at one of the symposia are treated as scientists and therefore see themselves as scientists. This increases their self-efficacy for science practices. Through the student research symposia, youth do science, learn science, and gain scientific habits of mind.
