Join the GLOBE Clouds team online every Thursday at 7pm ET 20 April 2023 to 11 May 2023 to learn how NASA studies clouds and ways to engage students with cloud observations and satellite data. The team will also go through how to use The GLOBE Program's GLOBE Observer app to collect observations.
Each session will take 45 minutes with time for question and answers. You must attend all four online sessions to receive full training. Detailed topics per session:
1. Why does NASA studies clouds? Joining the GLOBE Community.
Thursday, April 20, 2023, 7:00 - 7:45pm ET
2. Cloud cover, cloud opacity, and hands-on activities.
Thursday, April 27, 2023, 7:00 - 7:45pm ET
3. Using the GLOBE Observer app and cloud observations matched to satellite data.
Thursday, May 4, 2023, 7:00 - 7:45pm ET
4. Classroom implementation using the GLOBE Clouds Pacing Guides.
Thursday, May 11, 2023, 7:00 - 7:45pm ET

NASA Langley Research Center and the Center for Integrative STEM Education at the National Institute of Aerospace are offering a teacher professional development workshop for Hampton City School teachers on engaging students in hands-on citizen science. Teachers will explore The GLOBE Program and become GLOBE trained teachers. NASA GLOBE Clouds Project Scientist Marilé Colón Robles will lead participants in hands-on activities related to clouds, weather, and climate. The training will focus on why NASA studies Earth and how clouds play a role in affecting both weather and climate. Participants will learn how to enter cloud observations for NASA using The GLOBE Observer app and how to use the GLOBE Education One-Week Pacing Guides on clouds. NIA Educator in Residence and Hampton City School STEM Teacher Specialist Betsy McAllister will share supporting NASA eClips resources.
This workshop is open to 5th grade - high school teachers. It is structured with an online session followed by two face-to-face sessions hosted at the National Institute for Aerospace. Each meeting (online and face-to-face) will grant time for teachers to work on an implementation plan. Teachers will have a month to complete their implementation plan (conducting cloud observations) learned during the online session and first face-to-face session in their classrooms. The second face-to-face session will focus on refining implementation plans based on lessons learned.
