NASA ASTRO CAMP® Community Partners and INFINITY Science Center to Host GLOBE Students from U.S. Southeast
The GLOBE (Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment) Program, a collaboration between NASA, the National Science Foundation, and organizations around the world, is partnering with NASA ASTRO CAMP® Community Partners and the INFINITY Science Center, NASA Stennis Space Center's official visitors center, to host the 2023 Southeast (U.S.) Regional Student Research Symposium for students throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Puerto Rico, and Arkansas. With GLOBE, students learn the practices of science through hands-on Citizen Science investigations in their own communities, sparking their curiosity and interest in science, often leading to inquiries that help solve real-world problems and increased understanding of our global environment.
At the Symposium, students will share what they've learned from their research investigations of the atmosphere, pedosphere (soil), and hydrosphere (water). NASA partners will be available to respond to student research investigations and comment on the importance of a student's understanding of how Earth's systems are affected by Earth's changing conditions. This is a great opportunity for students to practice the skills they've learned through their involvement in The GLOBE Program and apply them to address real-world problems. Student research projects will be on display at the INFINITY Science Center on May 18-19, 2023, starting at 11:00 AM Central time for media or guest review.
NASA's ASTRO CAMP® Community Partners program is supported by NASA and is part of NASA’s Science Activation Portfolio. The ACCP team collaborates with community programs to bring NASA Science Activation activities to communities in fun and engaging ways, inspiring youth (with a focus on reaching underserved and under-represented groups) by sharing NASA Science.
