Mission Earth: West Region team plans for Professional Development for GLOBE Teachers

Jun 1, 2016

The WestEd/CCASN partnership are collaborating with a team of partners around the country to engage students in science through the GLOBE program — Global Learning and Observation to Benefit the Environment.  Through field-based science, using high quality research protocols, students have the opportunity to collect environmental data, interact with scientists, carry out local projects, and connect with other students in countries throughout the world.  This form of “real world” 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 the STEM fields and beyond. The partnership is currently developing a kickoff PD/Training program designed for high school GLOBE teachers in California and New Mexico.  The PD/Training program will include a review of GLOBE protocols associated with current and upcoming NASA mission programs, a discussion of the NASA missions and associated satellites, science pedagogy and other related areas of STEM research in the context of career academies.
