COSA GLOBE Seeks Volunteers to Score Student Science Projects

Hello everyone,

The GLOBE Program is looking for volunteers to help score projects for the 2018 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 in March 2018 after all of the projects have been submitted. It can take an hour or more, depending on how much time you are willing to commit. There will be an informational webinar (which will be recorded) on 16 March 2018 at 10:00 am MT and then judging will need to take place sometime between 18-24 March 2018. Judging consists of filling out a Google form with your scores and feedback for the project.

To sign-up as a volunteer, please go here:

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

Thank you!
