From Learning to Research: Developing Future Earth System Scientists and Professionals

Welcome to the From Learning to Research (L2R) Community!  This community is for teachers involved in either the 2011-2012 Cohort or the 2012-2013 Cohort.  However, resources in this community are available to all of GLOBE. 

L2R is funded by an NSF-ITEST (Innovative Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers) grant. The project seeks to establish a successful model for teacher-student-scientist interaction using 21st Century technologies.

The primary goals of L2R are:

  1. To provide teachers with the knowledge, skills, strategies, and confidence to engage middle and secondary students in authentic Earth System Science research on local, regional, and global scales.
  2. To expose teachers and students to careers in the Earth Sciences.
  3. To allow students to experience Earth System Science research by interacting with scientists from around the world.
 
Teachers participate in a 1-week summer institute and then bi-weekly webinars during the school year. The webinars included teacher-led progress reports on the student climate projects and guest speakers from a variety of STEM careers.
