The aim of this competition was to spread the importance of protecting the environment and raising awareness of the causes of environmental pollution. Participants had a good idea of the contribution that is provided by the Globe program, students were give some online workshops that explain the methods of collecting environmental data in a fun scientific way.
More then 70 students participated in this competition during the summer break. The winners were rewarded with medals and participation certificates

Over five decades of satellite and remote sensing data and technical infrastructure focused on observing the Earth continues to provide critical data and information for decision-makers daily. In fact, it plays a role in many of our daily lives and business practices.
Precollege students can now utilize the Space to Earth: Earth to Space (SEES) Model where observations and measurements can include both satellite and remote sensing imagery and data, and traditional...
They are all tropical cyclones, but the name hurricane is used exclusively for those in the North Atlantic and the Pacific Northwest.
How do they form and why do they usually occur in this part of the world?

The most common mechanism of hurricane formation in the Atlantic - which causes more than 60% of these phenomena - is a tropical wave.
When it reaches the Atlantic Ocean, the tropical wave may be the beginning of a hurricane, but in order for it to form, it needs energy sources, such as adequate humidity, heat and wind.
In particular, it is necessary that the...
