The GLOBE PROGRAM
The GLOBLE PROGRAM

1. Providing a common platform to interact with the students and teachers on environmental issues.

2. Helping a lot in spreading and disseminating environmental knowledge and concepts to large number of people.

3. Providing “Hands-on Environmental Experience” on environmental concepts to the students to carry out various measurements.

4. Motivating students to learn about scientific protocols by performing environmental learning activities, which are already introduced as theory in the greened textbooks.
GLOBE - A Meaningful Scientific Project
 
GLOBE can be an astonishing scientific experience for your students through participating in genuine globe research project, as they are direct participants in real scientific research. They contribute data, which are used by scientists and they feel the first hand excitement, the rigor and the challenges of real science.

Here are something by which teachers can make GLOBE more exciting scientific experience for students
 
Stress that the scientists need students data
 
The GLOBE Program is unique for the reason that scientists actually use the data collected by students and by knowing this students will get motivated to put out the efforts to obtain quality data. Through these activities the students will learn science and mathematics concepts and skills as well as the importance of precision and accuracy. This will also encourage them in pursuing their own scientific investigations.
 
Personalize the GLOBE scientists for your students
 

You can use the photograph of the scientists who designed the investigations, an interview with the scientists and a personal letter from them to your students and scientist's corner section in the website to introduce the scientists to your students on a personal level so that your students gets inspiration from them and who knows one of your student might join these scientists in future.

 
Encourage students to contact other GLOBE Schools>
 

GLOBE Program provides students with an exciting opportunity to meet, communicate and even mutually work with other schools all around the world. Using GLOBE mail, students can exchange messages with any GLOBE School and through GLOBE students data server, students can retrieve data submitted by other schools all around the world.

 
Use GLOBE Telecommunication
 

Through GLOBE website students can: obtain bulletins and updates; read background information regarding the program, the scientists and other schools; submit the data, examine and retrieve data from other schools, look at the graphic representations of data etc.

 
Use GLOBE Note Book
 
Encourage your students to keep a GLOBE science notebook in which students must record their reflections, ideas, hypotheses, questions, observations and sketches and also transcribe lab results and data as they progress through their book.
 

Each entry in the GLOBE science Notebook should include:

Date
Location
Time
If a field entry, environmental variables such as weather
Questions, hypotheses, methods, observations, analysis, conclusion, ideas
 
GLOBE Science notebook helps in
 
Follow student's developing understanding and asses their learning.
It can be exchanged among students to learn more and comment.
Drawing and recording in GLOBE science notebook helps students to focus and magnify their powers of observation.
