The GLOBE Program is a science and education program with a network of more than 37.000 schools in over 100 countries. Students (and the public) gather data about the quality of soil, water, atmosphere and nature. In this way they contribute to more knowledge about the environment and thus help scientists. By doing so they learn about science and the environment and become part of an international community.
To promote the teaching and learning of science, enhance environmental literacy and stewardship, and promote scientific discovery.
