GLOBE/Eco-Schools Summer Online Training
Want to engage your students in Green STEM? GLOBE, Eco-Schools, and SciStarter are presenting an online professional development training to provide learning opportunities that are scientifically rigorous while allowing students to address sustainability through service learning. The summer session runs from 13 June through 05 August.
This is a self-paced online course for those who want to become a GLOBE teacher and incorporate The GLOBE Program as part of their students’ progress toward sustainability. The course is presented through the National Wildlife Federation’s Wildlife University online learning platform.
Schools will receive science equipment necessary for students to conduct the GLOBE Protocols from Youth Learning As Citizen Environmental Scientists, YLACES. In exchange for the free tools students in grades 5-12 are expected to enter a minimum of 10 Soil Moisture Active Passive, SMAP measurements, and 4 weeks of precipitation data or for teachers of students in grades K-4, 4 weeks of surface temperature and precipitation data.
