About the GLOBE Program

GLOBE is a worldwide hands-on, primary and secondary school-based education and science program. GLOBE provides the opportunity to learn by:

Taking scientifically valid measurements in the fields of atmosphere, hydrology, soils, and land cover/phenology - depending upon their local curricula

  • Reporting their data through the Internet

  • Creating maps and graphs on the free interactive Web site to analyze data sets

  • Collaborating with scientists and other GLOBE students around the world

  • GLOBE is a partnership between the United States and over 102 other countries. Over a million primary and secondary students in more than 12,000 schools have taken part in the program and reported over 9.5 million measurements. And those numbers are growing!

    In addition to students, other interested parties are invited to participate in GLOBE by collecting and reporting data to the GLOBE database. This joint effort will help increase our knowledge and improve our understanding of the environment. If you are interesting in participating in GLOBE and helping to collect environmental data, you will need to be trained in proper methods for taking measurements.

    Information on how to participate is available outside the US by contacting your GLOBE country point of contact, found on the GLOBE Web site at, and in the US by emailing the GLOBE Help Desk at If there is sufficient interest from weather station operators, special training may be arranged.

    "GLOBE is the quintessentially ideal program for involving kids in science,"

    - Nobel laureate Dr. Leon Lederman.
