What is GLOBE?
The GLOBE initiative covers five Earth spheres: the atmosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, pedosphere, and Earth as a system, offering:
- Teacher training
- Field science activities
- Data entry, visualization, and retrieval
- A worldwide community
Relevance to SoYP
GLOBE is a central part of our Story of Your Place curriculum. We have selected a small number of GLOBE protocols and GLOBE Observer activities that all SoYP participating schools will do so that they can compare their places with each other, and with other locations in Oregon and around the world. These include:
In addition, we will recommend and train teachers in GLOBE-related field activities relevant to their chosen place in the context of the guiding question “What are the physical and biological characteristics of this place?”
For more information on how we can train and support you in GLOBE, please contact ACCF.
