GLOBE Students Across the World Celebrate Earth Day 2011
Sixteen years ago, on Earth Day, 22 April 1995, the GLOBE program was launched. In 2011, the international GLOBE network has grown to include 111 participating countries, with each country implementing GLOBE into local schools and communities. Now there are more than 56,000 GLOBE-trained teachers from over 24,000 schools; these teachers have inspired and encouraged more than 1.5 million students to participate as citizen-scientists in the GLOBE network, contributing more than 22 million measurements to the GLOBE database. The great success of the program is due to each and every student, teacher, school, trainer, coordinator, and community-member who have come together to increase awareness of the Earth, our interaction with it, and to directly contribute to our scientific knowledge through a shared network of environmental observations and inquiry-based science projects.  >>
