The NYC Department of Education is offering 3 day of training for Project Globe, a NASA supported, international environmental education network that allows students to collect data locally and contribute to a world-wide database. Teacher participants will become Globe-certified and receive a free kit (which becomes school property) valued at several hundred dollars, which includes all the equipment needed to collect data in the field plus a GPS receiver. Teachers will also receive training rate or new teacher credit, breakfast and lunch for all 3 days.

Dates: April 21-23 Time: 8:30AM - 4:30PM Location: Queens College

I will post the application on our website later today for you to download and fax ASAP- Space is limited to 40 teachers citywide. You can also e-mail me and I will send it to you as an attachment.

I have attended an introductory workshop on the Globe project and highly recommend this training, especially for those teachers who expect to teach ecology or meteorology next year.
