Judges Needed for GLOBE International Science Symposium!

It's that time of the year again!

The GLOBE Program is looking for volunteers to help score projects for the 2020 GLOBE International Virtual Science Symposium (IVSS).

The IVSS is a way for students from all over the world to showcase their hard work. With GLOBE, students learn the practices of science through hands-on investigations in their own communities, sparking their curiosity and interest in science. This often leads to inquiries that help solve real-world problems and further understanding of our global environment.

Volunteers are STEM professionals, teachers, graduate students, and other interested community members who will assist in scoring student projects.

Scoring begins on 30 March 2020 after all of the projects have been submitted. It typically takes around 15-30 minutes to assess each project. There will be an informational webinar (which will be recorded) on 30 March 2020 at 10:00 am MT (Join at the time of the webinar!) and then judging will need to take place between 30 March-06 April 2020. Judging consists of filling out a Google form with your scores and feedback for the project.

Sign-up as a volunteer. We will begin contacting judges in March.

The students really appreciate getting feedback on their projects in order to improve as researchers!


Announcement Timing: 
Wednesday, February 12, 2020 to Monday, March 30, 2020
