Regional Highlight: University of Nebraska Omaha

GLOBE soil protocols will be featured in an upcoming issue of the National Earth Science Teachers Association The Earth Scientist thanks to the Nebraska partnership at the University of Nebraska Omaha. Partner liaison Dr. Ashlee Dere and retired liaison Dr. Carol Englemann presented at the 2018 American Geophysical Union GIFT (Geophysical Information for Teachers) as part of the Hot Topics in Earth and Space Science session. They had a 90 minute slot to present on Soil: A Vital Natural Resource. Their presentation can be seen here. The article about the session, co-written with collaborators Missy Holzer (Monmouth High School), David Lindbo (NRCS, Washington, DC), Briana Wyatt (Oklahoma State) and Tracy Wilson (Oregon State University), will be published in 2020.

In true GLOBE fashion, workshop participants did the soil chemistry and soil particle size GLOBE  protocols at stations and used the Burlese funnel. SMAP was also part of the session.

The partnership at the University of Nebraska Omaha offers workshops and training on request. They also have a kit loaning program of equipment needed for GLOBE protocols they make available to teachers.

2020 SRS Update

Upload Reports IconThe 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.
