Register now for the upcoming GLOBE MISSION EARTH webinar: “Getting Your Students Involved Doing Research Projects: Collecting Data.” The webinar will be held on Wednesday, 09 November, at 8:00 p.m. EDT.

During this webinar, Dr. Czajkowski (Dr. C) will talk about the importance of collecting surface temperature data and the launch of the surface temperature field campaign. Matt Silberglitt (WestEd) will discuss formulating good research questions. James Less, and his students from Lake High School (Millbury, Ohio, USA), will demonstrate how to take surface temperature readings. Dr. Jeffrey C. Luvall (aka “Dr. Kool-NASA Nugget”) will showcase his research on the urban heat island effect.

The national project, MISSION EARTH, supports STEM education in elementary school through middle school, high school, and college by integrating GLOBE/NASA materials into K-12 science instruction. The overarching aim of MISSION EARTH is to produce national systemic change in STEM education through the creation of a recommended curriculum progression for diverse school districts across the United States. 

Students, teachers, and scientists are invited to engage in a series of webinars that marry GLOBE’s goals of increasing student data entry and student research and engaging the world community in improving the Earth’s environment with NASA’s goals of attracting students in STEM disciplines and engaging Americans in NASA's missions.
