Miss the December Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign “Open Forum” Webinars? Read This Blog!
Did you miss the Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign “Open Forum” webinars in December? Then read the recent GLOBE Community Blog, written by Brian Campbell, NASA Senior Earth Science Education Specialist.
“There was a lot of interactive discussions between students, teachers, scientists, and NASA education personnel during the 03 December and 04 December Open Forums for the Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign.”
“Here are the questions that were discussed as potential student research projects related to Trees. Students are invited to use any of these questions, or their own, in developing student research projects. As a reminder, these projects can be submitted to the 2020 GLOBE International Virtual Science Symposium due by 10 March 2020,” Campbell said in the blog.
The blog also provides links to online tools and programs meant to help students in analyzing and visualizing data for their student research projects:
