Collaboration is essential for every researcher, including citizen scientists! Set up collecting competitions, coordinate science projects, support educational initiatives, and much more with a GLOBE team. Teams can be created by anyone and managed directly on the GLOBE website. 

GLOBE teams are also an excellent way to bring together family members, clubs, troops, classes, or any other group of interested individuals for real-world science experiences. Through working together on projects, your team can contribute valuable information to the scientific community while strengthening the group's interpersonal coordination.

Create a GLOBE Team

After you set up your GLOBE team, you can check who is in your group and how many observations they've made for each GLOBE Observer protocol. You can also make your teams either open or private. Open teams can be joined by anyone in the GLOBE community, while private teams require a referral code in order to join. 

Note: If you make a private team, we'll provide you with the necessary code you can use to invite new members.
