Aerosol Awareness Heightens at International African Dust Workshop
GLOBE Teachers from the United States, Mexico, Cameroon, and French Guyana gathered with other science educators and NASA Scientists in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, from 20-25 June 2010 to learn innovative ways to incorporate GLOBE Protocols into classroom-based environmental studies. Hosted by NASA, GLOBE U.S. Partners Hampton University and Fort Hays State University, and the Puerto Rico NASA Space Grant Consortium, the workshop provided participants with the tools they need to study airborne particles, known as aerosols, in their own neighborhoods in order to analyze how those aerosols affect local and global climate.  >>

Stone Child College Leads GLOBE Tribal Initiatives
A GLOBE Partner since 2001, tribally-controlled community college Stone Child College (SCC) of the Chippewa-Cree Tribe offers degree and certificate programs of study. Located in Box Elder, Montana, the college primarily fulfills the educational needs of the Rocky Boy's Indian Reservation. This GLOBE Partnership, along with Stone Child College's instructional program, educates students in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education areas; particularly through their Natural Resource program.  >>

Michigan Summit Prepares Teachers for Climate Research Project
A NASA-sponsored Climate Change Summit was held in Wayne, Michigan on 24 August 2010 to introduce Climate Change and Remote Sensing topics to the Wayne County community and invite teachers to participate in the Investing Climate Change and Remote Sensing (ICCARS) Project. ICCARS is a NASA-funded STEM education program for grade 8-12 teachers and students aimed at providing a working understanding of the science behind global climate change and its relationship to human activity, in particular its relationship to land-use and land-cover (LULC) changes on multiple scales through NASA data products and models.  >>

Croatian Students Analyze Effects of City Lights with Five Years of GLOBE at Night Data
Since 2006, GLOBE has invited students around the world to take part in GLOBE at Night, a global campaign to measure night sky brightness. Participants choose a clear night during the two week campaign each year to go outside and observe the constellation Orion between 8 and 10pm local time, match the appearance of their sky with one of seven GLOBE Magnitude Charts, and enter their observations into the GLOBE at Night website. From this international-scale comparison, students learn about the effects of light pollution, defined as any unnecessary, useless emission of light in space outside the zone that needs to be illuminated. Often, light pollution occurs due to the use of bad lighting fixtures and incorrectly set lighting.  >>

GLOBE Latin America and the Caribbean Prepares for Student Climate Research Campaign
GLOBE leaders from 11 countries met 28 July through 2 August 2010 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, to discuss student research initiatives focused on exploring climate change. Representatives from Argentina, The Bahamas, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Perú, Surinam, Trinidad and Tobago, and Uruguay focused on new opportunities posed by GLOBE's Earth System Science Projects (ESSPs) and the GLOBE Student Climate Research Campaign.  >>

GLOBE Students from Ohio Invited to White House Science Fair
Three GLOBE students and their teacher, Melody Tsapranis, from Woodward High School in Toledo, Ohio, were invited to visit Washington D.C. on 18 October 2010 to attend the White House Science Fair hosted by President Obama. Tiffine Guindon and Tazhianna Dean from Woodward High School, and Alexandria Carey, currently a student at Rossford High School, were nominated by Dr. Kevin Czajkowski, Associate Professor, Department of Geography and Planning, University of Toledo, to represent the GLOBE Program at the White House Science Fair.  >>

2010 GLOBE Xpedition Returns to Kilimanjaro
On 21 September 2010, GLOBE Alumni, Scientists, Students, and Teachers arrived at the Xpedition Base Camp in Arusha, Tanzania, to prepare for the second annual GLOBE Africa and Seasons and Biomes Xpedition to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro. In addition to being a prime research location for global climate change, many other factors appeal to GLOBE Researchers since there are so many independent ecosystems within the six biomes found on the mountain: Alpine Desert, Cultivated Areas, Heath Zone, Moorland, Rain Forest, and the Summit. International team members traveled through all six biomes, observing variance between climates, ecosystems, and vegetation.  >>
