In July of 2018, more than 400 participants from 40 countries attended the sixth GLOBE Learning Expedition (GLE) in Killarney National Park.

This extraordinary event will live on in the minds and hearts of participants for years to come. The video provides a sense of the power of place, bringing science to life as students explore field sites in hauntingly beautiful Killarney National Park; participate in student research and cultural presentations; and listen to extraordinary student keynote speakers from around the world.

This video was shortened from the original 12 minute video that provides a deeper connection to the 6 students featured in the film. If interested, you can view that video on the GLOBE website at http://bit.ly/2018GLEvideo



The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) Program is an international science and education program that provides students and the public worldwide with the opportunity to participate in data collection and the scientific process, and contribute to our understanding of the Earth system and global environment. 

Teachers learn to conduct the GLOBE scientific measurement protocols and to implement learning activities in their classrooms. GLOBE students use the scientific protocols to collect consistent, scientifically valid measurements and then upload these data to the GLOBE database.

GLOBE’s global network provides opportunities for international collaboration through multi-national partnerships, an annual International Virtual Science Symposium, and GLOBE Learning Expeditions. From K-12 and beyond…GLOBE provides the foundation for research about our global environment, engaging participants in more than 120 countries in meaningful research about the Earth.

In 2020 GLOBE will celebrate its 25th Anniversary!
