Indiana Virtual GLOBE Science Symposium

The Purdue University College of Science K-12 Outreach is excited to host the Indiana Virtual GLOBE Science Symposium.

What is the Indiana Virtual GLOBE Science Symposium?

The symposium allows students (individually or in groups) in grades 5 - 12  to share results from research investigations using GLOBE protocols and/or the GLOBE database.  We hope the experience will prepare students for both the GLOBE International Virtual Science Symposium (IVSS) and the U.S. Midwest regional Student Research Symposia (SRS).  

The Top 2 projects will be recognized with the College of Science Staff and Faculty Choice Awards and will receive travel support to the Midwest Regional Science Symposium (May 2020).  Comments on submitted Google DOCs and winners of the CoS SFC Awards will be announced no later than Friday, December 13, 2019.


Each student group must submit a link to their Google DOC by Wednesday, November 27, 2019 (11:59 PM EST) 

Mentoring for Indiana Virtual Science Fair:

Mentoring for student group’s research questions is optional - if your student groups want feedback from Purdue graduate students, please submit the group’s draft of their research report to Steven Smith  Please understand that it will take up to 3 weeks to get feedback from these graduate students.
