GLOBE Mission EARTH

Through teacher-student-scientist partnerships, GLOBE Mission EARTH promotes students to engage in authentic science projects. As a NASA-funded project, GLOBE Mission EARTH (www.globe.gov/web/mission-earth) provides Professional Development for teachers focusing on project-based science. Students observe their environment through GLOBE protocols drawn from the atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere and pedosphere, as well as use NASA satellite imagery and learning activities. GLOBE (https://www.globe.gov/) is an international program in 119 countries that brings together teachers, students, scientists, educators and now citizen scientists to participate in data collection, the scientific process and environmental literacy. Students develop research questions, collect and plot data, analyze the data, and draw conclusions based on their data. Students learn to collect and submit scientifically-valid data while also integrating geospatial technologies, like GPS, into their learning experience to boost their STEM skills and become more competitive when they graduate. They are encouraged to present their results at the GLOBE regional symposia and/or to the GLOBE International Virtual Science Symposium. Through the experience, students and the public learn the importance of careful collection of observations, ways to analyze and interpret data, and scientific understanding of environmental issues. Some video was provided by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL).
