I have been focusing my GLOBE efforts on the organizing the Midwest Student Research Symposium.

But as wonderful as books and libraries were to me then, it’s amazing to see what libraries are doing today.   Libraries are local community centers and hubs for learning, with...

Hello GLOBE friends! The Evaluation Working Group has recently shared with you the results of the 2015 survey that was sent to the GLOBE teachers. The results from this survey, along with the results from the Annual Partner Survey provided us  with useful information as to how to better support  GLOBE in the classroom. Among other things,. the feedback we had from the teachers was that they are asking for evaluation tools they can use in their classrooms and for guidance on how to use these  tools.
