Two children, smiling, next to a brown dog, on a grassy field. Text in Spanish reads “Haciendo una investigación relevante para los estudiantes. Apoyo para proyectos estudiantiles de GLOBE Nubes” which translates to “Making research relevant to students. Support for GLOBE Clouds student projects”.

The GLOBE (Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment) Program is an international science and education program that provides students, educators, and citizen science volunteers with opportunities to contribute meaningfully to Earth science. Through its International Virtual Science Symposium (IVSS), GLOBE also encourages students to share their research projects, collaborate with peers, and receive feedback from STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics) professionals.

Participating in a science symposium can be an overwhelming endeavor for many students. Therefore, on December 12th, 2022, the GLOBE Clouds team conducted a webinar for educators to learn about resources that can be helpful to support students throughout the development of their GLOBE IVSS research projects.

During the webinar, GLOBE Clouds Scientist, Marilé Colón Robles, and Outreach Coordinator, Rosalba Giarratano, talked about the most recent GLOBE Clouds Student Support web page updates, including fresh ideas to engage students in interesting and relevant student projects. They also shared about several resources that can help students develop a good research question, conduct their literature review, interpret their data, and create their research poster. The webinar was conducted both in English and in Spanish, and the recording is available on Marilé Colón Robles’ GLOBE Program Blog.

GLOBE Clouds is part of the NASA Earth Science Education Collaborative, NESEC, which is supported by NASA under cooperative agreement award number NNX16AE28A and is part of NASA’s Science Activation Portfolio.
