Getting Started

In order to promote the wonderful opportunities the GISN provides and allow our members to better engage in the network and the broader GLOBE community, there will now be a requirement for GISN members to complete one GISN related activity per year starting in 2018. For a list of possible ways to participate, please see Ways to Participate.

1. Learn how to participate by viewing GISN Webinar 1 or the GLOBE Module for Scientists.

2. Set up your GISN account and update your profile:

  • Use the login information sent to your email to first log-in. After that you can create your own unique log-in.
  • Add a profile picture, video, and information about you and your research. See the GISN guide.
  • Use your profile to “friend” and connect to other members in the network.

3. Connect with the community: 

4. Create collaborations: Find members based on their investigation areas and protocols using the Find a Project Collaborator page.

5. Communicate with the GISN: Share ideas, documents, and questions on the GISN Message Board.

5. Participate

  • GISN Members must complete one GISN related activity per year
  • Check out this diagram of ways you can participate in the GISN and determine what level of involvement works for you based on your time and interests.
  • Write a blog post to share your scientific research with the community.
  • Propose a field campaign to get data from a lot of locations.

6. Learn more Watch the other GISN Webinars to learn more tools and tips for scientists interacting with teachers and students.

 

Ways to Participate in the GLOBE International STEM Network (GISN)


Each relationship with a GLOBE school is uniquely determined by you and the school. Members of the GLOBE International STEM Network are mentors and role models for students. You can participate at a level that is appropriate to your skills, resources, availability, and interest.

Inspire:​​​​​​​

This "Inspire" level of involvement in GLOBE is typically incidental to a scientist's regular work and may fulfill outreach requirements of the scientist's employment.  Options under this level include:
  • Visit a GLOBE school to do an activity
  • Write blogs about science topics and experience related to GLOBE and your field of expertise
  • Judge virtual GLOBE science symposium projects
  • Judge local, in-person GLOBE science fairs

Engage:

The "Engage" level of involvement in GLOBE involves a sustained effort in the network.  The scientist is expected to secure institutional support for this level of involvement or to be self-supported.  Options under this level include:
  • Sponsor a GLOBE student science fair
  • Affiliate with a GLOBE partner
  • Become a GLOBE trainer

Educate:

The "Educate" level of involvement in GLOBE involves the scientist taking an initiative toward a dedicated effort that will promote learning among the GLOBE community.  Support for this level of involvement is expected from an institution or organization that is sponsoring a student science fair or from a GLOBE Partner.  Options under this level include:
  • Partner with a GLOBE teacher or school
  • Use GLOBE data in your research
  • Publish a journal article involving GLOBE data

Lead:

The "Lead" level of involvement in GLOBE will require significant interactions with GLOBE management at the country and international levels consistent with sponsorship arrangements.  Support for this level is expected to come through grants made in response to proposals; the sponsors of GLOBE may occasionally or periodically solicit such proposals. Support for this level also may be a significant component of the engagement and public outreach activity of a science mission or institution and supported as part of a partnership agreement with GLOBE.  This will include reporting requirements.  Options under this level include:
