GLOBE Mission Earth (GME) and the NASA Earth Science Education Collaborative (NESEC) joined forces for the second webinar (in Spanish) to prepare GLOBE teachers and students to make observations during the upcoming total eclipse in South America. GME PI Dr. Kevin Czajkowski illustrated the correct way to collect surface temperature data and used a data sheet developed by GME research assistant, Sara Mierzwiak, Students from Crestwood High School in Dearborn Heights, Mich. (GLOBE teacher Diana Johns) talked about what they did for the 2017 Solar Eclipse in the United States and provided helpful hints for other student researchers. They also thanked David Bydlowski from the AREN Project for the solar eclipse glasses.
