Bring the excitement of deep sea exploration LIVE to your classroom, science center, or community events! Shipboard interaction capabilities aboard Exploration Vessel (E/V) Nautilus enable students or the public to engage in a unique two-way, live Q&A dialogue with scientists, engineers, and educators of the Corps of Exploration. Live interactions are available free to any classroom or community audiences to introduce learners to the excitement of ocean exploration and increase access to career role models, thanks to the support of Ocean Exploration Trust's (OET) education partners.

The team will be exploring with seafloor mapping and remotely operated vehicle dives throughout Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument and around the Hawaiian islands from March 14 to mid-October 2022.

GLOBE is excited to host the 2021 GLOBE International Virtual Science Symposium (IVSS)! The IVSS is a way for primary through undergraduate students from all GLOBE countries to showcase their research and 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. It's time for your students to show the world what they've learned!

Important date: The IVSS informational webinar offsite link is on October 7, 2020, at 11 am Eastern.
