The TTT will begin the evening of Monday, March 28th and continue for the full day on Tuesday, March 29th. The theme for this year's TTT is focused on "Air Quality and Urban Communities." Monday night will be an introduction to the theme and instrument calibration, a key step when training GLOBE. Tuesday morning begins with Elementary GLOBE Aerosols and then launches into the aerosol, temperature and precipitation protocols. John Moore will share his new project, Weather Watchers, over lunch and then we have an afternoon devoted to investigation questions, data and visualizations around the theme. Mike Jabot (NY) and David Padgett (TN) are in charge and will be enhancing our knowledge from their areas of expertise. The afternoon closes with implementation roundtables by grade level. The cost of this training is $50 and includes lunch on Tuesday.
The NARM will begin with an evening reception and opening presentations on Tuesday, March 29th and continues for the full-day on Wednesday, March 30th. The agenda is developing with input from the organizing committee (Jennifer Bourgeault (USCC), Lynne Hehr (AR), Sherry Herron (MS), Mike Jabot (NY),Tony Murphy (GIO), David Padgett (TN), and Kim Sadler (TN)) and the US Partner Forum members. The day is focused on networking and learning from each other and from our website experts. We will have website troubleshooting task tables, a website update, an introduction to the new Elementary GLOBE Climate book, an overview of the NASA CAN awards to our GLOBE partner colleagues, best practices roundtables and a facilitated discussion session on how we can increase national collaboration and visibility, specifically in response to the NSF Dear Colleague letter.
