WHAT IS A STUDENT RESEARCH SYMPOSIUM?
Find out more and sign up for a SRS on GLOBE's website:
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.
Take your students on the journey of a lifetime...
While students present their work, half-day professional development sessions are provided for chaperones who are teachers.
