GLOBE Partners Elevate Citizen Science at CitSciVirtual and NASA CitSciCon

The GLOBE Program was launched on Earth Day, 1994 providing “students and the public worldwide with the opportunity to meaningfully contribute to our understanding of the Earth system and global environment” (GLOBE, n.d.). As such, GLOBE is one of the first citizen science programs in the country. GLOBE Partners and community members continue to elevate this work every day. In the spring of 2021, 13 presentations were given by GLOBE Partners at the CitSciVirtual conference and the NASA CitSciCon. BRAVO contributors!
