Two St. Patrick Teachers Accepted Grants to Attend GLOBE Training Through NASA Infinity

The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) Program is an international science and education program that provides students and the public worldwide with the opportunity to participate in data collection and the scientific process and contribute meaningfully to our understanding of the Earth system and global environment.

St. Patrick Teachers, Emily Cloud MC ’97 and Debbie Worrel, were able to take advantage of a grant for instruction at NASA Infinity this summer. The teachers learned global techniques to determine the atmospheric, hydrologic, chemical, and biological areas of our watersheds.

This training will help the teachers connect students to scientists from different parts of the world to conduct real, hands-on science about their local environment and take that science into a global perspective.
