GLOBE Virtual Student Conference
The conference seeks to engage students in a careful examination of their own research for presentation and to develop content and communication skills in the process. Students will find the online venue to be a uniquely engaging means of having a conversation about their research with other students around the world.  >>

GLOBE at Night 2013
GLOBE at Night is a worldwide, hands-on science and education program to encourage citizen-scientists worldwide to record the brightness of their night sky. During five select sets of dates in 2013, children and adults match the appearance of a constellation (Orion or Leo in the northern hemisphere, and Orion and Crux in the southern hemisphere) with seven star charts of progressively fainter star  >>

Great Global Investigation of Climate
This global investigation will focus on defining local climate through GLOBE protocols and the student inquiry question "What is my climate and how has it changed?" Students are asked to collect and enter temperature and precipitation data in the GLOBE database and investigate how to classify local weather and climate using these atmospheric data.  >>

GLOBE Phenology and Climate Project
Plants are flowering faster than climate change models predict, according to a recent BBC report that was lartely based on results published in the journal Nature. Longer growing seasons may affect insects, allergens, animal migrations and may mean the need for more water -- to name a few of the potential impacts. Students can now take a leadership role in researching how seasonal patterns are changing while learning about the important relationship between plants and climate by taking part in the Student Climate Research Campaign's (SCRC) GLOBE Phenology and Climate Project.  >>

Climate and Land Cover Project
The Climate and Land Cover Intensive Observing Period is a research effort between GLOBE schools and climate scientists to improve land cover classifications for climate models. Using GLOBE land cover protocols, students take photographs and classify representative land cover areas near their schools and upload these data to the GLOBE database. These data can be used by students to compare land cover around the world and will be used by scientists to improve land cover classifications for climate models.  >>
