Earth Day is coming! Earth Day is celebrated on 22 April every year, everywhere. Celebrating Earth Day helps focus attention on our marvelous planet though education, data collection, and community service. Earth Day 2017 is also the 22nd anniversary of GLOBE's founding, so it is a special day for our community.
Earth Day falls on a weekend this year, so the GLOBE Implementation Office (GIO) will provide a live Earth Day Google Hangout on Friday 21 April. During this event we will broadcast one short video per GLOBE region in which teachers and students tell their stories of how GLOBE is implemented in their classrooms. I can't wait to see the videos! Teachers, you have until 22 March to send your videos for consideration. Click here for more information.
We also like our community to be involved in data collection on Earth Day and this year and I'll be asking you to go outside and make cloud observations. NASA is planning special activities for you, too. More information about all of this, in my next letter.
