Members of the NASA Langley Science Directorate Education Team supported the YMCA STEM Fair at the Virginia Air and Space Center on July 25, with the assistance of two NASA Langley teacher interns and two student interns. During the event GLOBE cloud observations were submitted using the GLOBE Observer app and campers had the opportunity to interact with a set of GLOBE Observer Cloud hands-on learning activities developed for informal audiences. The event was attended by over 2,000 campers from 15 different YMCA camps across the Peninsula.

Camp Directors were provided a “GLOBE Goes to Camp” packet providing an overview of the GLOBE resources and activities currently being developed for camps under the NASA Earth Science Education Collaborative (NESEC).
