The Science Fair is for students of all secondary schools (tto, international and regular).
GLOBE Science Fair
Each year we organise and host the GLOBE Science Fair where students present the results of their research efforts! On this page you can find more information about participation and preparation.
- When? June 9th 2023
- Where? Wageningen University & Research
- Who? Each school can send one team of 3 to 5 students (level H/V 4/5) with 1 to 2 accompanying teachers. Preferably, the school stimulates several teams to conduct research, of which one team is chosen to represent the school.
- Why? It is a fun and educational way to let students share their research with scientists.
- What? You can study anything you want, as long as GLOBE protocols are used. This can be an international protocol were the results have to be uploaded to www.globe.gov, making them available to scientists and schools worldwide. Or the protocols from Globe NL, which you can find on our website. In preparation, you guide the students during the writing of the research report.
All communication is in English, but students that don’t feel confident are allowed to make their research report and presentation in Dutch
The winning team receives a goblet and a mystery prize! Read about the experience of the winning team of the Science Fair 2022.
GLOBE en tto
The Science Fair is interesting for all high schools. For tto-schools the Science Fair offers an interesting CLIL student activity. Furthermore, GLOBE offers various possibilities for both EIO and CLIL. This programme can be used with or without the Science Fair, for various learning objectives.
Participating International Virtual Science Symposium
The same criteria apply to projects for the science fair and the International Virtual Science Symposium (IVSS). If you finish a project before 10 March, upload it not only for the GLOBE Science Fair but also for the IVSS. Your project will then be shared worldwide and you will make a chance to give a presentation at the international GLOBE day (maybe in America!).
