NASA GLOBE Clouds and Girls Scouts Take Action for the Planet

Girl Scouts of the USA partnered with SciStarter to help girl scouts around the country complete their “Take Action for the Planet” projects focused on our climate. The GLOBE Observer app is one of four platforms recommended for participants to gather environmental observations. Four virtual sessions were organized to lead participants through their project development. The first session featured NASA GLOBE Clouds science lead, Marilé Colón Robles, as one of three guest speakers. Marilé presented to over 600 girl scouts about clouds and satellite comparisons to Terra, Aqua, CALIPSO, and geostationary satellites. The session was a way to inspire girl scouts to study science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) through the opportunity to interact with female scientist role models.
