Celebrate Earth Day with GLOBE – Air Temperature Data Challenge

Earth Day is 22 April, and this year marks the 27th Anniversary of The GLOBE Program!

To celebrate Earth Day 2022, the GLOBE Implementation Office (GIO) invites GLOBE students to participate in the global Air Temperature Data Challenge. The challenge encompasses a series of activities that will give students the opportunity to engage in the scientific process. The challenge's objective aims to:

  • collect air temperature (AT) data measurements simultaneously around the world;
  • visualize AT data with graphs or drawings; and
  • connect with the worldwide GLOBE community during the celebration and beyond!
