Welcome to the WestEd/CCASN Collaborative for Youth Engagement

WestEd and CCASN are pleased to announce our participation in MISSION EARTH. This project supports STEM education in school districts by vertically integrating the GLOBE/NASA materials from elementary school through middle school, high school, and college. The project will bring together the best practices from throughout the United States to enable teachers and their students to use GLOBE and NASA materials throughout their schooling and build critical skills over time.  

Consistent with their commitment to educational effectiveness and equity, WestEd and CCASN at UC Berkeley are collaborating to strengthen students' readiness for college and future careers by providing opportunities for students to participate meaningfully and rigorously in solving real global and local problems. 

  • GLOBE California Academy Program logo Mission Earth: Fusing GLOBE with NASA Assets to Build Systemic Innovation in STEM Education is a project resulting from a collaborative proposal to NASA to further the goals of NASA and GLOBE in relation to science education. The consortia of of education and science organizations is made up of the University of Toledo (Principal Investigator) with Boston University, Tennessee State University, WestEd, University of California, Berkeley, and the NASA Langley Research Center as Co-Investigators. The combined expertise of these entities will move NASA’s educational outreach for Earth Science to progress into its next phase. Learn more »


  • GLOBE California Academy Program logoThe GLOBE California Academy Program (CAP), engages green academy students in science and technology through this NSF, NASA and NOAA sponsored GLOBE Program — Global Learning and Observation to Benefit the Environment. Through field-based science, using high quality scientific protocols, students have the opportunity to collect environmental data, interact with scientists, carry out local projects, and connect with other students in countries. This form of learning strengthens students' facility with science practices while providing opportunities for civic engagement and the development of critical 21st century skills in preparation for future careers in STEM fields and beyond.
