GLOBE Students Share Weather Data with Washington Post Meteorologist

GLOBE Students at Cedar Grove Elementary School in Maryland, USA

The Washington Post’s head meteorologist Jason Samenow recently met with GLOBE elementary students at Cedar Grove Elementary in Germantown, Maryland, USA who have been busy collecting weather data using GLOBE protocols.

Students in the third and fourth grade at Cedar Grove Elementary School worked for several months with Dorian Janney, a NASA education and communications specialist with the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission. They collected weather data using GLOBE atmosphere protocols. They compared their data and data from the National Weather Service to see if they could find any impacts from the El Nino on their weather over a three-month period.

The students also participated in the GLOBE Virtual Science Fair, and also got a chance to invite Jason Samenow to come and let them present their poster to him. Jason also gave a presentation to the school¹s upper grades on the causes and effects of weather, and explained why we need satellite data to help us both predict and study Earth's weather rand climate.
