GLOBE Fall Phenology Study

By , October 27, 2010

Manoomin students spent much of the day out at Dead Fish conducting a Fall Phenology study. Phenology refers to the recurring plant and animal life cycle stages, such as leafing and flowering, the aging process  of agricultural plants, emergence of insects, and migration of birds. Many of these events are sensitive to climatic variation and change, and are simple to observe and record. As an observer, everyone can help scientists identify and understand environmental trends so we can better adapt to climate change.

Students prepared PowerPoint presentations to the entire group in an culminating forum.

GLOBE Study at Mission Falls

By , July 11, 2010

Students participated and teachers were trained in GLOBE. GLOBE (Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment) 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 of the environment and the Earth system working in close partnership with NASA and NSF Earth System Science Projects (ESSPs) in study and research about the dynamics of Earth’s environment.

Who is involved in GLOBE?

Announced in 1994, GLOBE began operations on Earth Day 1995. Today, the international GLOBE network has grown to include representatives from 111 participating countries coordinating GLOBE activities that are integrated into their local and regional communities. Due to their efforts, there are more than 50,000 GLOBE-trained teachers representing over 23,000 schools around the world. GLOBE students have contributed more than 20 millionmeasurements to the GLOBE database for use in their inquiry-based science projects.
