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.  >>

Partner's Update
GLOBE is part of Sound to Sea, the only residential environmental education program on the NC Outer Banks, offering school groups a habitat-based program which includes multi-disciplinary hands-on activities, a Challenge Course and special evening programs. Last year, 110 school groups (over 6000 students-grades 2-12, teachers and chaperons) explored this NC barrier island and its five habitats in Sound to Sea programs at Trinity Center on Bogue Banks. The Sound of the Sea (SOS) staff was introduced to GLOBE using the Earth As a System Activity and trained in GLOBE hydrology protocols. Protocols include water transparency, water temperature, dissolved oxygen, ph, macro invertebrates, and salinity for their work with middle grade students and as a GLOBE site. SOS staff participated in GLOBE learning activities including the water walk, model a catchment basin, the Carbon Cycle Adventure Story and the Carbon Travels Game. SOS staff also navigated the GLOBE website and learned how to use the GLOBE visualization tools to view 10 years of SOS data collected.  >>
