The GLOBE Program is looking for volunteers to help score projects for the 2019 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 26 April 2019 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 25 April 2019 at 10:00 am MT (click here at the time of the webinar to join!) and then judging will need to take place between 26 April-05 May 2019. 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: https://www.globe.gov/news-events/globe-events/virtual-conferences/2019-international-virtual-science-symposium/judges. We will begin contacting judges in April.
The students really appreciate getting feedback on their projects in order to improve as researchers!
