What is GLOBE?

The GLOBE Program is an international science and education program that provides students and the public worldwide with the opportunity to participate in data collection and the scientific process, and contribute meaningfully to our understanding of the Earth system and global environment. Announced by the U.S. Government on Earth Day in 1994, GLOBE launched its worldwide implementation in 1995.

What is the GLOBE International Scientists’ Network?

The GLOBE International Scientists' Network (GISN) is an international network of scientists that work with GLOBE students around the world conducting science. Scientists mentor students and teachers, present scientific ideas, and/or collaborate on scientific research. Each relationship between a scientist and a GLOBE school is unique, and is determined by the scientist and the school. This relationship can be established in different ways.

Why Would Scientists Join the GISN?

  • Scientists working with GLOBE have a strong desire to mentor and inspire young minds by interacting with the next generation.
  • GLOBE has a scientific database extending over 20 years with data in most earth system science research areas that can be used to supplement standard research data.
  • GLOBE students can collect additional data related to your research expanding your observation network. Propose a Field Campaign!
  • The international nature of GLOBE provides a unique opportunity to add or establish an international component to your research. 
  • GLOBE students want to be a part of real-world, cutting edge science that matters to them, their community and scientists. GLOBE scientists contribute to science education in a unique way that can have a lasting impression on student interest in science, as well as scientific literacy.
