Every year, I offer a field based professional learning opportunity (PLO) for educators. This year's PLO was Exploring Badlands National Park through Science and Storytelling held June 18-21 in South Dakota. Nine educators spent one day in class and three days and two nights in Badlands National Park doing hydrology field studies using GLOBE protocols (water temperature, water clarity, conductivity and pH) in addition to other opportunities. As part of my own professional learning, I set myself a challenge of trying to tell the story of the field studies in ways other than...

I'm at the GLE now - working with lots of folks!
On June 4-7, 2018, I participated in the Annual Country Representative meeting and Strategic Planning for Sustainability and Participation workshop in Lome, Togo. The meeting was followed by Teacher training in the GLOBE Observer Apps and a Mosquito/Zika training workshop. The Training was rewarding and the need for Liberia to begin immediate action is now. The Liberia office will be conducting 6 GLOBE Observers Apps and Mosquito/Zika Virus training Workshop soon. Participants will be selected from Public Health Workers, Scientists, teachers and Community Leaders in...
Did you know that NASA is closely using satellites to monitor trees around the world. There is so much trees can tell us, from Earth's biomass to area of mass tree blight to where our forests are healthy and flourishing. NASA researchers at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and the University of Maryland have teamed up to use current Landsat satellite data to study the changes in Northern forest extent. By looking at forest patterns and sparse and open canopy forests, what is happening to the trees can help us monitor change on a warming planet. On September 12, 2018, NASA will...
