Every day can and should be Earth Day! During this webinar, we will focus on the various ways in which all citizens can be engaged in helping make our home planet a better place. Participants will learn how this is possible through both the GLOBE Program and the GLOBE Observer app. We will look at the current status of Earth's "vital signs" by showing everyone how to access and review the current status of Earth’s health from NASA’s Global Climate Change website. We will hear about many of the efforts that are currently underway within many federal agencies to enable citizens to become involved as citizen scientists. Darlene Cavalier, the founder of “SciStarter”, will show us how to navigate the "Sci Starter” resources. We will learn about the efforts of both Star_Net and the GLOBE Observer to include libraries from across the US to use the GO Cloud app on Earth Day, as well as an upcoming effort by museums around the world to use the upcoming GO mosquito app for the UN sponsored “Global Experiment” The GLOBE Implementation Office received many fantastic videos for Earth Day from teachers and students around the world, and we will view a video from Surinam.
All webinars will take place at 8:00 pm U.S. Eastern time (EDT/UTC-4 for Webinars #2 & #7-10, EST/UTC-5 for Webinars #3-6).
