Event information

Wednesday, September 21, 2022 @ 1:30pm EDT (5:30pm UTC). Planting Roots and Leaving a Legacy Behind and Setting the Research Stage for Year 5 of the Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign Focus: North America. 

This webinar will be the final webinar for Year 4 of the Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign. Next month (October 2022) will begin Year 5. During this webinar, we will have several guest speakers, led by teacher Julie Houck, of Defiance Elementary School in Defiance, Ohio. Julie will begin by discussing how she and her students have used resources as a GLOBE teacher to reach the community and beyond, including how she wrote a successful grant, using GLOBE connections, to expand into the local community. I have been able to connect with various organizations to partner together. Julie's efforts have extended to The Defiance Soil and Water Department, the GLOBE B-Wet Program, Defiance College, as well as a local county commissioner's office. There will be a variety of speakers from these groups joining in on the discussion. This type of collaboration will propel us into talking about several activities for inside and outside the classroom, and how we can bring students together, help to develop student research topics using new and archived GLOBE data, and set the stage for guided student research, during Year 5 of the campaign, and for collaboration with other GLOBE schools for student research.
