As the GIO announced called for nominations for GLOBE working groups, where i happen to have served for the period 2016 - 2019, my seniors at the University asked members of faculty,  to demonstrate how we have contributed towards SDGs for the last 2 years? Suprisingly its the small things i have been doing in GLOBE which have given me mileage over my colleagues. Having been a member of GLOBE since 2006, and serving in different capapcities while being active in GLOBE campaigns and working groups, has made me contribute to SDGs [ 4, 5, 15, 17]. My personal research has enabled me...

Did you know that the mosquito is the world's most dangerous animal? What could be a better topic for students to research than this common insect that can cause so much damage?  We are looking for teachers and students who are interested in using the GLOBE Mosquito Habitat Mapper as a part of their IVSS science project investigation. You do not need to have active mosquitoes to do this research. There are so many ways that this can be done!  Students can collect data using the Mosquito Habitat Mapper and find out:  - Where in their community they find...

In this article, meet Prof. Glenda Ivette Lozada Negrón, a science teacher whose elementary classroom is actively engaged in reducing the risk of mosquito borne disease through mosquito surveillance and mitigation, as part of an ongoing service learning project in Puerto Rico . Tell us about your project? The project began as part of a curriculum with the Science and Research Trust of Puerto Rico and the Science in Service project. It is a community of teachers that serves to help students create new learning communities. Since August 2018, I have been working with an...

    Guest Scientist blog by Dr. Joseph Kerski, Esri Esri and the GLOBE program have been working together on initiatives and educator training for decades.  GLOBE was one of the first major education-focused citizen science programs, and it offers a wealth of data on soil chemistry, water quality, weather, and much more, as well as rigorously tested methods to have your students collect and contribute data, and a network of educators with which to collaborate. Using GLOBE Observer Mosquito Habitat Mapper data as an example,  we look at what I consider to...

  A new article is now available on the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) Science Scope journal geared for middle school teachers on ways to integrate using the GLOBE Observer app in the classroom and take cloud observations. The article titled " Making Science Come Alive with Clouds " features GLOBE superstar educators Mr. Jeffrey Bouwman (Shumate Middle School in Gibraltar, Michigan, USA) and Dr. Caryn Smith-Long (Montverde Academy, Montverde, Florida, USA) as they share their classroom technology expertise and how they use the app with their...
