For whom?

  • The Science Fair is for students of all secondary schools (tto, international and regular). The working language will be English.
  • Each school is allowed to send 1 team (minimum 3, maximum 5 students) level H/V 4/5 (or equivalent) and 1 or 2 accompanying teachers to the Science Fair. Preferably, the school stimulates several teams to conduct research, of which one team is chosen to represent the school. Our rubrics can provide guidance.
  • The teacher supervises the students in writing of a research report that they will upload on the GLOBE website. Here they will be available for scientists and schools worldwide.

What do we expect of participating schools?

  • You partake in the start-up meeting. This year we will focus on sharing of ideas between schools, to promote learning between experienced schools and starting schools.
  • You will mentor one or more teams in doing an empirical research project using one or more GLOBE protocols. A team consists of maximally five students. Per school one team is allowed to partake in the GLOBE Science Fair. If you have several eligible teams, it is up to you to decide who will represent your school. A suggestion for selecting the most suitable team would be to organise a Science Fair at your school. Our rubrics can help with the assessment process.
  • You ensure the teams upload their research data on the international GLOBE website, in order to make it available for scientists and schools worldwide.
  • You supervise your students in writing a research report that they will upload on the GLOBE website.
  • You accompany your team to the GLOBE Science Fair. Per team 1 or 2 teachers are allowed to be present.

 

GLOBE and tto

The Science Fair is interesting for all secondary schools (tto or not). For tto schools GLOBE offers many opportunities for both EIO and CLIL. The programme can be used, either with or without the Science Fair, for various teaching purposes (e.g. content or scientific skills) in sciences classes of tto education.
