Sri Lankan GLOBE Club Develops Tools for Outreach and Collaboration
The official Web site of the GLOBE Club of Maliyadeva College in Kurunegala, Sri Lanka, was ceremoniously launched 5 December 2007 by Mr. R.M.M. Rathnayake, the Principal of the College. With guidance from the Ministry of Education and other GLOBE Clubs in Sri Lanka, the Maliyadeva GLOBE Club is the first to launch a Web site dedicated to furthering information about GLOBE activities in Sri Lanka.
The Web site provides a link to the online "Arana" magazine, also produced by the Maliyadeva GLOBE Club. A wonderful example of GLOBE across the curriculum, students use poetry to express their observations of the environment, writing in both the national language, Sinhala, as well as in English. Another link on the site will take you to "Knowledge Base," the online center for articles pertaining to GLOBE study sites and protocols including soil, hydrology, land cover and atmosphere.
We encourage students and teachers to access this great student resource. Please Visit www.mcgc.tk, the official Web site of the GLOBE Club of Maliyadeva College! We congratulate the GLOBE Club for their innovative approach to spreading information about GLOBE in Sri Lanka.
