U.S. Middle/High School Educators: NASA Langley Research Center’s GLOBE Partnership Accepting Applications (Due 24 June) for the ENGAGE Cohort (2022/2023 School Year)

GLOBE NASA Langley Logo

U.S. Middle/High School Educators: The ENGAGE (Earth, NASA, GLOBE and Guided Explorations) GLOBE Mission Earth program is providing an opportunity for you to participate in a year-long program to explore ways to help your students improve their observation and science writing skills using The GLOBE Program.

Participants will be introduced to pacing guides and lesson plans centered on outdoor environmental observations. The sequence will culminate in student writing that will be considered for publication on the GLOBE website. (While materials will focus on Earth science, a broad range of educators are welcome to apply.)
