Student Research Symposia

Announcement on the 2021 GLOBE Student Research Symposia

After much deliberation, the U.S. GLOBE Office, in consultation with event sponsors NASA and YLACES, has decided to cancel the 2021 Student Research Symposia.


After considering several options, including a virtual Student Research Symposia, we determined that an alternative event was not feasible. For the 2020-2021 academic year, we will be focusing on increasing the numbers and engagement level of the U.S. STEM professionals in the GLOBE International STEM Network (GISN)

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.
