GLOBE MISSION
  • GLOBE IS SCIENCE AND EDUCATION
  • GLOBE BRINGS TOGETHER STUDENTS, TEACHERS, AND
  • SCIENTISTS TO:
    • ENHANCE ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS OF
    • INDIVIDUALS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD
    • CONTRIBUTE TO SCIENTIFIC UNDERSTANDING OF
    • THE EARTH
    • SUPPORT IMPROVED STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT IN
    • SCIENCE AND MATHEMATICS
slide3
OVERVIEW
  • GLOBE IS A HANDS-ON INTERNATIONAL SCIENCE AND EDUCATION PROGRAM
  • GLOBE STUDENTS IN PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOLS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD:
    • TAKE GLOBE ENVIRONMENTAL MEASUREMENTS USING SCIENTIFIC PROTOCOLS
    • REPORT OBSERVATIONS TO THE GLOBE DATA ARCHIVE VIA THE INTERNET
    • STUDY EARTH SCIENCE TOPICS USING GLOBE MAPS AND GRAPHS AND OTHER GLOBE EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS
  • EVERY GLOBE SCHOOL HAS A GLOBE-TRAINED TEACHER
slide4
GLOBE INITIATIVE
  • GLOBE INITIATIVE INTRODUCED ON EARTH DAY 1994
  • GLOBE PROGRAM INITIATED ON EARTH DAY 1995
  • OVER 95 COUNTRIES
  • OVER 10,000 SCHOOLS AND 15,000 TEACHERS INVOLVED WORLDWIDE
  • UNITED NATIONS GENERAL ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION DECEMBER 1994
    • ENDORSED GLOBE AND ENCOURAGED NATIONS TO PARTICIPATE
    • UN AGENCIES REQUESTED TO SUPPORT IMPLEMENTATION
slide10
GLOBE SCIENCE
  • GLOBEMEASUREMENTS HAVE BEEN SELECTED BY THE INTERNATIONAL SCIENCE COMMUNITY AND ARE DESIGNED TO PROVIDE ACCURATE AND RELIABLE RESULTS IF DONE PROPERLY
  • SCIENTISTS USEGLOBE DATA IN THEIR ON-GOINGRESEARCH
  • GLOBESCIENTISTS INTERACT WITH TEACHERS AND STUDENTS INVOLVED IN GLOBE TO PROVIDE FEEDBACK, ENCOURAGEMENT AND ADVICE
  • GLOBE ACTIVITIES STRENGTHEN THE LINKS BETWEEN LEADING RESEARCH SCIENTISTS AND STUDENTS AT SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD
slide11
GLOBE ENVIRONMENTALMEASUREMENTS
  • ATMOSPHERE/CLIMATE STUDIES
  • AIR TEMPERATURE (MAXIMUM, MINIMUM, CURRENT)
  • PRECIPITATION (RAIN, SNOW, pH)
  • CLOUD COVER/TYPE
  • RELATIVE HUMIDITY
  • OZONE
  • AEROSOLS
  • BAROMETRIC PRESSURE
  • HYDROLOGY STUDIES
  • WATER TEMPERATURE
  • TRANSPARENCY
  • WATER CHEMISTRY
    • pH, DISSOLVED OXYGEN, ALKALINITY, NITRATE
  • SALINITY OR CONDUCTIVITY
  • SOILS STUDIES
  • SOIL TEMPERATURE
  • SOIL MOISTURE
  • SOIL CHARACTERIZATION
    • STRUCTURE, COLOR, TEXTURE, pH, FERTILITY, POROSITY
slide12
GLOBE ENVIRONMENTALMEASUREMENTS (CONT)
  • LAND COVER/PHENOLOGY
  • CANOPY AND GROUND COVER
  • BIOMETRY (TREE HEIGHT, DIAMETER, GRASS BIOMASS)
  • SPECIES IDENTIFICATION
  • LAND COVER/MAPPING
  • GREEN UP AND GREEN DOWN
  • FUNCTIONAL OR PERFORMANCE SPECIFICATIONS FOR
  • GLOBE SCIENTIFIC INSTRUMENTS ARE PROVIDED
  • APPROXIMATE COST FOR INSTRUMENTS: $500 FOR BASIC MEASUREMENTS; $500 ADDITIONAL FOR ADVANCED MEASUREMENTS
slide20
GLOBE TIES TONASA MISSIONS

    • Land Cover/Biology
    • Phenology and Budburst Special Measurement
  • PICASSO - CENA
    • Aerosol
  • CloudSat
    • Clouds
  • Aura

GLOBE EDUCATION
  • GLOBEPROVIDES AN INQUIRY-BASED APPROACH TO STUDYING AND UNDERSTANDING THE ENVIRONMENT AS A SCIENCE
  • GLOBEADDRESSES THE EARTH AS ASYSTEM
  • GLOBEMATERIALS ARE RESOURCES TO ENHANCE EXISTING SCIENCE, MATHEMATICS, AND SOCIAL SCIENCE STUDIES
    • GLOBEIS NOT A FREE-STANDING ENVIRONMENTAL CURRICULUM
    • GLOBE TEACHERS INTEGRATE GLOBE INTO CURRICULA
  • GLOBE PROVIDES EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS FOR USE K-12
    • GLOBE TEACHER'SGUIDE
    • GLOBE LEARNINGACTIVITIES
    • GLOBE VIDEOS
    • GLOBE WEB SITE

Generation of Knowledge

Learning Science

slide27
GLOBE Program Evaluation
  • SRI COMPARISON OF GLOBE CLASSROOMS WITH NON-GLOBE CLASSROOMS SHOWS THAT GLOBE PRODUCES:
    • POSITIVE IMPACT ON STUDENT LEARNING AND PERFORMANCE
      • MORE TIME HANDS-ON
      • LESS TIME MEMORIZING
    • HEIGHTENED TEACHER EXPECTATIONS OF STUDENTS
    • IMPROVED STUDENT HIGHER ORDER THINKING SKILLS
      • INTERPRETING DATA
      • DRAWING INFERENCES
    • ENHANCED STUDENT APPRECIATION OF WHAT SCIENTISTS DO
      • STUDYING PROBLEMS WITHOUT A CLEAR SOLUTION
      • COLLABORATION WITH OTHER SCIENTISTS
slide29
This contour map was created from GLOBE student data. Each colored square marks a GLOBE School reporting the maximum air temperature for the previous 24-hour period.

Such images are prepared for all GLOBE datasets and are available at the GLOBE Web site.

GLOBE
  • A WORLDWIDE STUDENT/SCIENTIST PARTNERSHIP
  • IN ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH AND EDUCATION
  • A GRASSROOTS EXTENSION TO WORLDWIDE EFFORTS TO UNDERSTAND THE GLOBAL ENVIRONMENT
    • SCIENTISTS ARE GAINING ACCESS TO DATA THAT WOULD OTHERWISE GO UNCOLLECTED
    • MANY OF THESE DATA COMPLEMENT SATELLITE REMOTE SENSING MISSIONS
  • YOUNG PEOPLE ARE CONTRIBUTING TO UNDERSTANDING OF EARTH AS A SYSTEM WHILE DOING SCIENCE
    • LEARNING SCIENCE BY DOING SCIENCE
    • GLOBE PROVIDES RESOURCES TO TEACHERS TO INCORPORATE INQUIRY INTO SCIENCE CURRICULUM
    • GLOBE IS SUPPORTING EDUCATIONAL ACHIEVEMENT
slide37
GLOBE
  • A WORLDWIDE STUDENT/SCIENTIST PARTNERSHIP
  • IN ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH AND EDUCATION (CONT)
  • INTERNET AND WORLD WIDE WEB ENABLES GLOBE PARTNERSHIP
    • GLOBE WEB SITE PROVIDES MEANS TO
      • SHARE DATA AND IDEAS
      • COMMUNICATE AND COLLABORATE
      • TO LEARN COOPERATIVELY
    • GOOD ACADEMIC USE OF COMPUTER AND WEB-BASED TECHNIQUES
