Earth Day 2015
A Google Hangout: Engage with Dr. Tony Murphy and GIO Staff online on Earth Day, 22 April.
A GLOBE data entry app that allows users to perform data-entry on a large number of GLOBE science protocols directly from their phone or tablet. You've been asking for it, and Raytheon Web Solutions (RWS), the Technology Working Group, and the GLOBE Implementation Office (GIO) have been working to make it happen! Users will be able to collect their GLOBE measurements while in the field and without an Internet connection. Once they return to their classrooms, teachers and students will be able to upload their data to the GLOBE website with a single click. Look for the application for both iPhone and Android devices in mid-April.
Data entry recognition. During the week of Earth Day, the GIO will be giving special recognition to the schools that have been our best data contributors.
A data entry challenge. During the week of Earth Day, we will be challenging the community to enter more data using the existing data entry forms and the new app mentioned above.
A website refresh. GIO and RWS are constantly working to improve your user experience on our website. Scheduled to be launched on Earth Day is a new and improved www.globe.gov. The new look and feel of the site should make navigation and location of materials more efficient.
A newly revised Teacher's Guide.
A global celebration of our 20th Anniversary throughout the year ahead. GLOBE Community, if you are planning anything for GLOBE's 20th Anniversary year, please let us know so that we can share it with the GLOBE community worldwide.
