STEM Professionals' Blog


The GLOBE International STEM professionals Network (GISN) Blog is an online collaborative effort where scientists associated with GLOBE post their thoughts, comments, and philosophies about a variety of science topics.

GLOBE strongly encourages positive and productive discussions to further advance the scientific understanding of all involved with The GLOBE Program.




GLOBE Student Investigations with NASA This collaborative webinar was planned and presented by three NASA Science Activation Earth science awards and the GLOBE Implementation Office. Each group shared a broad range of NASA-sponsored opportunities and resources to connect students to investigating our Earth system using NASA and GLOBE data.  The recording is available on-demand  https://www.globe.gov/web/mission-mosquito/overview/webinars/archived-webinars A list of resources shared by the presenters is available at https://bit.ly/3cwCkhz The goal is to support...

The Next 25 Years “ To Observe the Earth and Visualize the Future ” GLOBE Satellites in Education Team (G-SET) Over five decades of satellite and remote sensing data and technical infrastructure focused on observing the Earth continues to provide critical data and information for decision-makers daily. In fact, it plays a role in many of our daily lives and business practices. Precollege students can now utilize the Space to Earth: Earth to Space (SEES) Model where observations and measurements can include both satellite and remote sensing imagery and data,...

The NASA GLOBE Clouds team never imagined this time last year that we'd be holding our GLOBE 2020 Community Cloud Challenge in the midst of a global pandemic. But GLOBE is about community and showing how science is better together! In the four weeks of the challenge, we had the opportunity to learn how eight different NASA scientists study clouds to better understand our atmosphere and the important role citizen science observations play in that. You also had the chance to learn about cloud-related activities from six different amazing GLOBE educators.   And...

Hello! My name is Faguni and I am a rising senior from San Jose, California. Over the summer, I participated in the NASA STEM Enhancement in Earth Science Internship program and was a part of the Mosquito Mapper Team.  What was originally supposed to be a two-week program at UT-Austin and the Johnson Space Center, turned into an eight-week virtual internship, all from the comforts of our bedroom! Despite the mild hiccup, our mentors worked hard to create and deliver an unforgettable experience that immersed us into the life of a NASA researcher and scientist.  Our program...

I worked  with a team of four other SEES interns to conduct an investigation into mosquito larvae trapping. We chose to research  the effectiveness of mosquito larvae traps in different geographical areas, as we noticed that many of the interns were having trouble with capturing mosquito larvae in experimental traps. Moreover, understanding what type of traps and trap bait type most attracted mosquitoes could offer insight into why areas had significantly higher mosquito populations than others. Array of experimental traps in WA We conducted investigations in five...
