GLOBE ENSO (El Niño Southern Oscillation) Campaign has been formulated to engage students in determining where and how much El Niño affects local places and to put students in contact with their local environment.
The GOES-R: Global Weather Watchers K-14 project encourages students to share weather reports from around the world. Through data collection, learning activities, and comparisons to geostationary satellites, students will learn firsthand the connectedness of global weather patterns and global transport systems.
The GLOBE Bootcamp, a five-day GLOBE protocols intensive for 36 partners and teachers from the U.S. Southwest region, concludes today in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Thank to Koy Coffer for taking photos!
