What better way to learn science, than by doing science? This is exactly what the GLOBE program is designed for.
The GLOBE (the Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment) program provides teachers, students, and community members with scientifically verified, data collection protocols as well as training and networking assistance in order to provide these educators and budding scientists with meaningful, hands-on experiences with the scientific method (all while producing research quality data for use by an international community of researchers, including NASA!).
Berks Nature is an official GLOBE Partner, with the capacity to train educators in the GLOBE curriculum, allowing Berks County's teachers to introduce these interdisciplinary, hands-on science activities in their own classrooms!
In this special training for Elementary Educators, Berks Nature's GLOBE-certified Mentor Trainer will:
- Introduce GLOBE, its set up, its protocols, and its plethora of online resources to help students and teachers collaborate and share their science.
- Train participants in using the Elementary GLOBE curriculum, which takes a storybook approach to engage students K-4 in the scientific method. GLOBE has produced seven Elementary storybook modules, each with five learning activities to reinforce and practice skills in scientific inquiry.
By the end of the workshop, all participants will be certified to teach the Elementary GLOBE curriculum in their classroom and will receive all seven of the Elementary GLOBE module books.
Please note, end times are approximate.
