Earn Awards for Doing NASA Science with GLOBE Observer

GLOBE Observer, the mobile app of the Global Learning and Observation to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) Program , gives anyone who wants to (in 120+ GLOBE countries) the opportunity to do NASA science by making environmental observations that complement NASA satellite observations and help scientists study Earth and the global environment. 

On March 6, 2024, the GLOBE Observer team released a new way to appreciate and celebrate volunteer contributions: My Achievements! This new section of the GLOBE Observer app helps volunteers keep track of their contributions to GLOBE and shows milestone badges and streaks for all data that volunteers have submitted to GLOBE (since 1995). The awards can be found under “My Achievements”, accessible from the GLOBE Observer home screen. Milestone badges are awarded at intervals of 1-5-10-25-50-75-100-150-200-250-300-400+, and volunteers receive a thank-you email when they receive a milestone badge. Volunteers can also earn “streaks” by making observations for two or more days in a row.

GLOBE Observer is part of the NASA Earth Science Education Collaborative (NESEC), which is supported by NASA under cooperative agreement award number NNX16AE28A and is part of NASA’s Science Activation Portfolio.
