Carbon Cycle Modeling eTraining Now LIVE!

The GLOBE Program is pleased to announce that the Carbon Cycle Modeling eTraining is now live. This module covers systems and models, their associated vocabulary, diagramming systems, and why models are useful tools for understanding systems. It also highlights three GLOBE Carbon Cycle Online Models that introduce systems thinking and the global carbon cycle.
The GLOBE Carbon Cycle Modeling Activities use a systems-thinking approach to gain a foundation in the carbon cycle and its relation to climate and energy. The activities use computer models (at varying levels of complexity) to predict the change in biomass and carbon storage over time, and give students the opportunity to use an important scientific tool.
These activities are an excellent way to address to both the "Developing and Using Models" Science and Engineering Practice and the "Systems and System Models" Crosscutting Concept of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
Looking for other places to connect carbon to NGSS? The full set of Carbon Cycle materials incorporate a diverse set of activities geared toward upper-middle and high school students, including Introductory Learning Activities, Plant-A-Plant Experiments, Protocols and Field Learning Activities, Computer Modeling, and Comprehensive Teacher Support.

23rd GLOBE Annual Meeting in Detroit, Michigan, USA, A Collaborative Success
วันที่ : 25 กรกฎาคม 2562
Jul 25, 2019
The 23rd GLOBE Annual Meeting, which was held in Detroit, Michigan, USA, from 14-18 July, was attended by almost 250 people from 35 countries. Participants took part in a variety of engaging and enlightening presentations, workshops, cultural presentations, and special interest and professional development sessions. They were also treated to focused addresses by GLOBE Implementation Office (GIO) Director Dr. Tony Murphy and keynote speakers from around the regions.
GIO would like to thank everyone for their participation and contributions – helping to make this scientific and educational event a collaborative success. “The 23rd GLOBE Annual Meeting was a wonderful success due to the hard work of GIO staff and the community involved in planning the meeting and those participating in it,” Dr. Tony Murphy said. “Participants made comments to me that the annual meetings were getting better and better each year, more organized and with better planning.”
The theme of the meeting, hosted by Dr. Kevin Czajkowski and David Bydlowski, was “Intersections of Diverse Environment,“ which sought to explore Detroit’s diverse cultural, geographical, and economical environments in multiple strands: Finding Nature in Urban Landscapes; Exploring Changing Environments; GLOBE and Technology; and GLOBE Gives Back.
Nearly 60 students participated in the two-day “student experience,” which was held at the Howell Nature Center from 16-18 July. (Howell Nature Center is an outdoor education and wildlife rehabilitation center located about an hour outside of Detroit.) Students engaged in hands-on activities centered around learning about the local environment; and also designed and worked on a project using GLOBE protocols to help them better understand their environment.
“It was awesome to see the students´ energy and excitement about their GLOBE research on Monday evening, with topics from air pollution to incidence of mosquito populations. While the students left Detroit for a two-day field experience at Howell Nature Center, the adults learned lots of new information in sessions from their colleagues,” Dr. Murphy said.
“The growing collaboration in the program was visible by all six Regional Coordinator Offices coming together to discuss and organize a new water campaign across all the regions – something that has never really occurred before, especially for an idea originating in one region, Africa,” Dr. Murphy said. “Given this energy, GLOBE heads into the 25th anniversary year stronger than ever.”

GLOBE Zika Education and Prevention Project Presents Comic-style Book “Zika Zine”
วันที่ : 9 กรกฎาคม 2562
The GLOBE Zika Education and Prevention project is happy to present, “Zika Zine.” Developed by the UCAR Center for Science Education, Zika Zine is a comic-style book that follows the story of three fictional mosquitos through their developmental life cycles in order to teach readers about the Aedes aegypti mosquito and the Zika virus.
The Zika Zine story shows students collecting mosquito larvae, using the GLOBE Observer Mosquito Habitat Mapper (GO MHM) tool, to correctly identify mosquito species and to safely eliminate mosquito breeding sites. Zika Zine is a great resource for teachers, public health officials, citizen scientists, and community members; and to use at mosquito trainings.
Currently, Zika Zine is available online in English and Spanish (and will be available in Dutch, Filipino, French, Hindi, Nepali, Portuguese, Thai, and Vietnamese).
