A teacher and his students use GLOBE to study-and possibly save-their hometown waters
In the spring of 2017, the GLOBE Program-an international science education initiative funded by NASA and supported by The National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the US Department of State-held six regional Student Research Symposia where teachers and students from schools across the country shared the results of their field investigations using GLOBE Program data collection protocols. In this series of feature stories, we profile some of the teacher/student teams who presented at these symposia.  >>

Looking up into a personal path of discovery
NH students collect data for NASA studies of 2017 eclipse. August 21, 2017, the day the sun and the moon shadow danced across the United States, brought a multitude of memories…and gifts. For astrophysicists, biologists, meteorologists, entomologists—almost any science “ists” you can name—the eclipse rendered literally billions of data that will deepen our understanding of the universe, from the elements found in faraway stars to the behavior of Earth-bound microorganisms. For those who wanted only to see an eclipse in their lifetime, the rewards were perhaps less quantifiable but just as profound: awe, astonishment, contemplation, celebration, and maybe even a few moments of shared, absolute silence. But while the sight of the moon drifting across the face of the sun was stunning, it was the image of millions of faces looking up – not down at our smart phones, not down at our laptops, not down at our feet lost in thought – but up at a natural miracle that made this eclipse different from any that have come before. GLOBE Program US Country Coordinator Jen Bourgeault, who is based at the Joan and James Leitzel Center for Mathematics, Science, and Engineering at the University of New Hampshire, noted that any of her UNH peers with a professional interest in the eclipse was far from campus that day, conducting experiments in or near the path of totality.  >>
