For the past twenty years, the Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) Program has involved students, teachers, scientists and the public in “doing” science. Participants engage in real world science, collecting and contributing data to better understand our home planet. To celebrate its’ anniversary, GLOBE is hosting the 2106 GLOBE International Virtual Science Fair.
Participants from around the world are invited to share their science entries, highlighting the following concepts:
- entering and using GLOBE data
- community impact
- connection to a local or network scientist
- international connection
- engineering solutions
All projects should include:
- The use of GLOBE data
- an abstract
- a research report
- a presentation
- and photo releases for all people appearing in the video.
The deadline for submission of projects is 11 March 2016 and the awards will be announced on or before Earth Day, 22 April 2016. Complete guidelines will be announced in July 2015 and for more detailed information please visit: http://www.globe.gov/news-events/globe-news/newsdetail/globe/2016-globe-international-virtual-science-fair.
