GLOBE Community: NASA Has Funded Four GLOBE U.S. Partners to Lead Earth Science Projects – STEM Made Easy!
Tip of the Week: NASA has funded four GLOBE U.S. partners to lead NASA Education Earth Science Projects through STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) agreements. Check out these innovative, educational, and inspiring projects:
- Mission EARTH: Fusing GLOBE with NASA Assets to Build Systematic Innovation in STEM Education (University of Toledo, Ohio; Kevin Czajkowski, Principal Investigator) – GLOBE Mission EARTH is a collaborative of multiple institutions across the United States formed to increase involvement in The GLOBE Program with the goal of connecting students to scientists in the common pursuit of real-world science.
- AEROKATS and ROVER Education Network (AREN) (Wayne County Intermediate School District, Wayne, Michigan; David Bydlowski, Principal Investigator) – The goal of AREN is to train the next generation of scientists, engineers, and other professionals to observe and understand our planet Earth through experiential learning using NASA technology and data in real-world settings.
- Impacts and Feedbacks of a Warming Arctic: Engaging Learners in STEM using NASA and GLOBE Assets (Arctic and Earth SIGNs) (University of Alaska, Fairbanks; Elena Sparrow, Principal Investigator) – This program connects youth and adults to climate issues and Earth science learning through inquiry-based GLOBE investigations and community stewardship projects.
- NASA Earth Science Education Collaborative (NESEC) (A partnership between four GLOBE partners: the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) and NASA Earth science divisions at three NASA Centers: Goddard Space Flight Center, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and Langley Research Center. NESEC is enhancing STEM teaching and learning by creating engaging, meaningful, and authentic STEM experiences and resources that are: based on NASA Earth science; tailored to specific audiences’ needs; as a whole, reaching diverse learners throughout their lifetimes; and delivered broadly through strategic partnerships. NESEC's interrelated activities and partnerships include citizen science with 1) ) GLOBE Observer, 2) GLOBE student investigations with NASA, and 3) strategic partnerships and collaborations.
