Science Educators Training on GLOBE Objectives (SET GO)

K-12 Teacher Outreach

Elementary and secondary science teachers will become involved in the international science community as they receive inquiry-based training in www.GLOBE.gov protocols in land cover, biomass, atmospheric studies and hydrology through the SET GO program at The University of Tulsa. 

Participating teachers will attend a two-day GLOBE training seminar and will be eligible to apply for grant funds to purchase GLOBE-approved equipment and protocol materials for their classrooms.  The materials, valued at $1,000, will enable students to engage in research and inquiry-based activities in the classroom.

GLOBE (Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment) is a worldwide hands-on, primary and secondary school-based science and education program. GLOBE's vision promotes and supports students, teachers and scientists to collaborate on inquiry-based investigations of the environment and the Earth system working in close partnership with NASA and NSF Earth System Science Projects (ESSPs) in study and research about the dynamics of Earth's environment.

"GLOBE is the quintessentially ideal program for involving kids in science,"

- Nobel laureate Dr. Leon Lederman
