About GLOBE

The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) Program is a worldwide hands-on, primary and secondary school-based science and education program. GLOBE's vision promotes and supports students, teachers and scientists to collaborate on inquiry-based investigations working in close partnership with NASA and NSF Earth System Science Projects (ESSPs) to study dynamics of Earth's environment.  The GLOBE program allows teachers to meet the NC DPI Standard Course of Study in Science at all grade-levels.  GLOBE is the Original Citizen Science Program and challenges students to collect, upload and use global data for research conducted at K-12 schools, universities and governmental agencies.
