“GLOBE is the quintessentially ideal program for involving kids in science”
– Nobel laureate Dr. Leon Lederman.
The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) program is a worldwide hands-on, primary and secondary school-based science and education program. GLOBE’s vision promotes and supports students, teachers and scientists to collaborate on inquiry-based investigations of the environment and the Earth system working in close partnership with NASA, NOAA and NSF Earth System Science Projects (ESSP’s) in study and research about the dynamics of Earth’s environment.

I’m just wondering if any of you have used this lovely sunny day to put your nest boxes and insect homes up? I’d love to hear about where they are and see a picture – if you email a photo (see my address on the contacts page) I’ll put it on the blog… Look forward to hearing from you…
