Surface Temperature Trainings
On April 12 and 13 educators from across Virginia and North Carolina participated in GLOBE Surface Temperature workshops. Twenty-four educators participated in workshops with GLOBE Master Trainer Dr. Kevin Czajkowski, from the University of Toledo. The workshops were organized by the GLOBE Partnership at NASA Langley Research Center and sponsored by CALIPSO. Teachers and Trainers received hands-on training in using Infrared Thermometers to identify surface temperature. Participants collected and compared surface temperature readings from various surfaces, such as asphalt, grass, gravel, and water. The workshops challenged participants to identify a scientific question that their students could investigate using the GLOBE Surface Temperature protocol.  >>
