Students, teachers, and scientists from around the world are collecting, sharing, and analyzing data about the Earth as part of Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE), an international environmental science research and education program.
Since its inception in 1994, GLOBE has been run by an interagency program office based in Washington D.C., with involvement and support from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Departments of Education and State.
The GLOBE program is intended to meet three primary goals:
- To contribute to scientific understanding of the Earth
- To help all students reach higher levels of achievement in science and mathematics
- To enhance the environmental awareness of individuals throughout the world.
