Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) program is a worldwide hands-on, school-based science and education program. GLOBE's vision promotes and supports students, teachers and scientists to collaborate on inquiry-based investigations of the environment working in close partnership with NASA, NOAA and NSF. Learn how to study Earth System Science using GLOBE science-based storybooks designed to introduce students to key concepts in water, soil, clouds, seasons, and Earth System studies, as well as interrelated subjects including weather and phenology. Teachers will leave this workshop as certified Elementary GLOBE teachers.
