Global Learning & Observations to Benefit the Environment

GLOBE is a worldwide hands-on, primary and secondary school-based environmental science and education program.

For Students, GLOBE provides the opportunity to learn by:

  • Taking scientifically valid measurements in the fields of atmosphere, hydrology, soils, and land cover/phenology
  • Reporting their data through the Internet to the student data archive
  • Creating maps and graphs on the free interactive Web site to analyze data sets
  • Collaborating with scientists and other GLOBE students around the world

For Teachers, GLOBE provides assistance through:

  • Professional development workshops
  • Downloadable teacher's guides, "how-to" videos, and other materials
  • Continuing support from a Help Desk, scientists, and partners
  • Contact with other teachers, students, and scientists worldwide in Web Chats and listserves

The GLOBE program at Stennis Space Center is managed by the NASA Educator Resource Center. Throughout the year the ERC hosts multiple one-day teacher workshops.

Stennis Space Center has been a GLOBE Franchise Training Site since January 1997. Educators who participate in the GLOBE workshops are awarded GLOBE certificates and CEU credits.

For more information about the GLOBE program, visit the GLOBE Web Site. For more information about GLOBE training at Stennis Space Center and for the latest GLOBE workshop schedule, please call (800) 237-1821 (select option 2).

GLOBE training is offered free of charge to educators at John C. Stennis Space Center. As schools become GLOBE sites, they are responsible for purchasing materials necessary to perform measurements in the investigations.
