GLOBE Mission EARTH participated in STEM in the Park at Bowling Green State University on Saturday, September 24, at the Perry Field House. The team of GLOBE Mission EARTH promoted and demonstrated the new GLOBE Observer App to the general public. The parents and children received a crash course on cloud identification and take-home activity cards.

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) in the Park is a yearly event which features over 140 unique hands-on STEM activity stations or interactive displays created by community partners, local businesses and area universities to engage children of all ages in the STEM fields. The event drew more than 4,000 people from northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan. Northwest Ohio Center for Excellence in STEM Education (NWO), a partnership among a number of area universities, K-12 schools and community partners, organizes this free event on BGSU’s campus every year.
