All are invited to participate in the AREN Project. After contacting AREN, the next thing that you are encouraged to do is to join the GLOBE program. Science educators and citizen scientists around the world become involved in GLOBE by attending a Teacher Training Workshop or taking part in virtual eTraining. This qualifies you as a "GLOBE Teacher." If you are not a "GLOBE teacher" yet, it is important that you create a GLOBE teacher account and make sure that you become a certified GLOBE teacher. To become a certified teacher you can either be trained at a workshop in your area or participate in GLOBE online training.
