What We Stand For

The Education Working Group supports the concept that lifelong learners of all ages, from kinder to elder, should be actively engaged in The GLOBE Program. The group, in cooperation with the sponsors, GIO, other working groups, and other community members, endeavors to ensure GLOBE's training materials and educational resources are of the highest quality. The group also promotes worldwide connections and collaboration to support scientific literacy among the GLOBE community.
