I don’t know if you heard but the GLOBE Learning Expedition is going to be in New Dehli, India August 4-8, 2014. I heard that GLOBE is going to send 5 school teams to India for the meeting. If you remember from the summer, I told you about the teacher and students from Akron that went to South Africa. The projects that students can do for the SATELLITES Conference in April could be entered into the GLOBE competition. This is for students in grades 7-12. The deadline is April 21 for the first version of report. Revisions will be due after that. Thanks, Kevin

Here is more information.

We would like to invite you to apply to the NSF ITEST-funded grant “From Learning to Research: Developing Future Earth Science Scientists and Professionals” 2012-2013 Cohort.

GLOBE teachers (6-12th grades) from the United States are invited to apply. The goal of the project is to assist teachers in assembling a locally focused climate project with their students while collaborating with schools and scientists from around the U.S.

Teacher will attend a summer institute from 6-13 July in Boulder, CO. All travel, food, and lodging will be covered by the grant. Then, during the 2012-2013 school year, teachers will be expected to participate in the following:
1. Participation with students in online collaboration with other classrooms, including bi-weekly webinars for teachers
2. Participation with students at a spring 2013 virtual student conference
3. Assembling and completing a locally focused climate project with students in one of these four areas:
a) Aerosols and/or Ozone and Climate
b) General Atmosphere/Climate
c) Hydrology and Climate
d) Land Cover Changes and/or Phenology and Climate
4. Completing required assessments, surveys, collecting and entering classroom data

Teachers will receive the following:
1. $1000 Stipend
2. Equipment to support GLOBE activities
3. Opportunity to connect with scientists and other schools across the U.S.
4. Access to inquiry-based climate and Earth System Science curriculum materials
5. An estimated 40 hours of customized professional development
6. Access to a network of content-area and technology specialists
7. The opportunity to share findings and projects at professional conferences and/or meetings

Announcing OhioView SATELLITES Geospatial Technology Conference

OhioView SATELLITES Geospatial Technology Conference
K-12 and university students present their research projects based on geospatial technology
Presented by
OhioView & Penta Career Center

April 27, 2010
4:00pm – 8:00pm

Penta Career Center
9301 Buck Road
Perrysburg, OH 43551

Contact: Kevin Czajkowski, 419-530-4274, kczajko@utnet.utoledo.edu
K-12 and university students will present their research results from work they performed throughout the school year. In order to emulate the way scientists present their research for review, students present their findings at the SATELLITES conference. Being able to present findings is a way for students to show they truly understand the way scientists work and to appreciate their own work as “scientists”. This year’s SATELLITES conference is set for April 27, 2010 at the Penta Career Center.
This year’s themes were the International Polar Year and climate change. Both research questions are quite timely. IPY has occurred when Arctic sea ice has melted back to historically low values. Also, there is much discussion about climate change and what should be done about it. The projects build on field work that the students conducted in the fall associated with the GLOBE program.
This year’s conference will feature a keynote address by Dr. Kevin Czajkowski from the University of Toledo. He will present his perspectives on climate change.
