GLOBE Learning Expedition Concludes in New Delhi
The 5th GLOBE Learning Expedition (GLE) drew to a close today in New Delhi. More than 300 participants from 32 countries took part in a range of educational activities including research and poster presentations, field studies and dialogue with keynote speakers and scientists.
GLOBE Learning Expeditions are organized every few years in order to provide students from around the world the opportunity primarily to present their research projects to their peers, to GLOBE scientists, and the greater GLOBE community. These conferences also provide students with the opportunity to establish friendships and to develop collaborative partnerships that will enhance their future GLOBE experiences.
