Task
 
Description and Evaluation
GLOBE was initiated in 1994 in the USA. GLOBE encourages pupils to measure aspects of their local environment (using standardised procedures) and report their results over the Internet to be available to use them in a wide range of projects and activities. GLOBE uses the data to provide free images, maps and graphs on the state of the planet. All raw data can also be downloaded to compare differences between local and global environments. GLOBE schools can also communicate with each other around the world using the in-built 'GLOBE Mail' encouraging international links and joint projects.
How many students did participate?
Until 2005 countries have joined the programme and the 15,000 schools taking part have compiled over 10 million data records.
