Stars and STEM Stories


Students Find GLOBE All Over
After just one year in the program, the Nancy Young Elementary School in, Aurora, IL, has neatly woven GLOBE into almost the school's entire fifth grade curriculum, including art, music and physical education! In addition to science activities centered on GLOBE atmosphere protocols, fifth-graders have created GLOBE posters and written and performed songs and dances about GLOBE.  >>

Science Meets History with Buffalo Soldiers
GLOBE students from five Louisiana schools have explored California's Yosemite National Park taking GLOBE measurements and following trails blazed by the famed "Buffalo Soldiers," historic African-American army units that explored the West.  >>

Swiss Schools Work Hard and Win
Sixty (60) GLOBE students and their teachers celebrated nine months of intense, competitive GLOBE measurement gathering and data entry with a day-long excursion to a farm high in Switzerland's Bernese Alps and the award of new computers. The goal of the competition was for 13 participating Swiss schools to collect as much hydrology or atmosphere GLOBE data during the nine months of the school year as possible and enter it into the GLOBE database.  >>

Italy, California Share Science and Cultures
The experience of being an exchange student can foster love of learning other languages and cultures. When GLOBE students add hands-on science they get memories, skills and knowledge that can last a lifetime. So too, for parents and teachers.  >>

Maine's Major Landcover Events
The rain in Maine falls mainly on...woodland, closed forest, apple orchards, and urban residential and transportation areas. You can see more precise landcover descriptions and classifications in the GLOBE database for that state, thanks to the efforts of recent GLOBE "MUC-a-thons" in Maine. A MUC-a-thon describes many students, teachers and schools coming together for large-scale landcover identification using the Modified UNESCO Classification (MUC) system.  >>

Florida's GLOBE Travelers
These Florida students have explored the rain forest of Costa Rica. They've collected data on that country's plants, leatherback sea turtles and insects. They've demonstrated GLOBE soil protocols to their student-colleagues at a Costa Rican GLOBE school. Back home, some developed their own science experiments. One captured honors at the county science fair.  >>

Studying the Arctic
A group of GLOBE teachers, school principals and Country Coordinators from seven nations gathered recently in Fairbanks, Alaska to learn GLOBE protocols and to advance an international scientific investigation into whether and how much harmful chemicals from lower latitudes have seeped into the Arctic region.  >>

Views from Space Help Decipher Hometown
Sometimes the view from faraway space gives you information you can't easily obtain by looking just two feet in front of you. That's what the fourth-grade GLOBE students at Kohlberg Elementary School found when they compared up-to-date satellite images with historical satellite images, maps, and stories of their town, El Paso, TX.  >>

Young Scientists Impress News Media
GLOBE teacher Richard Muncy wanted to borrow a camera from Pigeon Roost Elementary resource department to snap photos of his 5th-grade GLOBE students at work. The school, impressed, called in local Kentucky newspapers to take the photographs instead.  >>

Partnerships Strengthen GLOBE Schools
Bowling Green University, a GLOBE Partner, works closely with Woodmore Elementary (Woodville, OH), Kenwood Elementary (Bowling Green, OH), and Perryburg High School (Perrysburg, OH) to increase the impact of the Program.  >>
