16th Annual GLOBE Partner Meeting
Feb 01, 2012
You are invited to the land of 10,000 lakes – Minnesota, USA – for the 16th Annual GLOBE Partner Meeting. The National Center for STEM Elementary Education at St. Catherine University will host the 2012 GLOBE Partner Meeting from 16–20 July. The theme of this year's meeting is GLOBE and STEM: Building a Global Community of Citizen Scientists.
Located in St. Paul, Minnesota, USA, St. Catherine University's campus and the Crown Plaza Hotel in nearby Bloomington will be the hubs for a week of sharing successes, innovative training and developing the GLOBE global community.
Conveniently accessible via the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, this year's GLOBE Partner Meeting will also offer unique opportunities for field activities and exploration of Minnesota's lakes, rivers and parks — from the nearby Mississippi and Minnesota Rivers to the University's own 110-acre forested campus.
The Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan region offers many recreational options for visitors. Whether the preference is outdoor exploration, shopping, or arts and cultural attractions, the region is in full bloom in July with average daytime temperatures of 83F/28C and more than 12 hours of sunlight each day.
We will keep you informed of further details in the weeks ahead. For more information contact :
