Creative New Use for Ski Poles in Finland
More than forty new and old participants in the GLOBE Program in Finland kicked off the new school year with an event at the U.S. Embassy in Helsinki. With the assistance of Senior Scientist Achim Drebs from the Finnish Meteorological Institute, the group transformed old ski poles into snow depth measurement sticks and learned how to use them to take scientific measurements of snow depth. This school year GLOBE schools in Finland will participate in a national snow depth measurement project, a project that can be adapted to all ages across the school curriculum.  >>
