Regional Highlight: Resources to Support Remote Learning

The Team at WestEd/UC Berkeley are navigating their way through the California “shelter at home” mandate as a result of COVID-19.  Meeting with GLOBE Mission EARTH (GME) teachers and students over the Zoom platform has enabled the partnership and teachers to stay connected.  On March 26th the Team met with 12 GME teachers from California and Hawaii to discuss a variety of topics ranging from on-line learning strategies and abilities to keeping student research projects alive. 

Recognizing the disparity of schools and school districts to provide resources for students to continue their learning, the Team and teachers discussed opportunities to support structured learning practices in grades 2-12.  Key resources were identified during the meeting and include a variety of NASA and GLOBE resources.

2020 SRS Update


Upload Report imageThe United States GLOBE Student Research Symposia (SRS) will not be held this spring due to COVID-19. The next in-person Student Research Symposia will be held in the spring of 2021, at the same locations as the 2020 events. While it is no replacement for an in-person event, we would like to honor the progress and dedication of students working this spring on SRS projects. There will be an opportunity for students to receive feedback virtually. Projects uploaded by May 1, 2020 to the GLOBE website and tagged with SRS will be reviewed by STEM professionals who will leave comments on the project page. We also invite GLOBE students to participate in the peer review process.

What if teachers/students cannot make that deadline? Can students upload projects any time? Have more questions? Please see our SRS 2020 COVID FAQ.
