Looking for ways that your patrons can do Earth Science at home? Here are some GLOBE Observer resources that they can do right where they live!
Watch this recorded webinar to hear from library staff about how they have involved their patrons in using GLOBE Observer and learn about ways your community can participate safely and remotely in citizen science.
Their observations will help scientists track changes in clouds, water, plants, and other life in support of climate research. Scientists also use their data to compliment NASA satellite data. And by submitting observations, they can help students of all ages do real scientific research as part of the GLOBE Program.
To participate, download the app, register with an email address (you can also register using a web form), then go outside and follow the prompts in the app to observe your environment. Choose a citizen science project below and get started.
Note: Always follow guidelines from your local officials. If it is not safe or you cannot go outside, you can still participate with the activities below to learn more about the science and engage in hands-on STEAM activities.
