GLOBE Teacher Training Workshop, Nov. 6, 2001
"GLOBAL IMPLICATIONS . . ." November 6, 2001 -- The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) science and education program recently held one of its Teacher Training Workshops on the New Mexico Tech campus in Socorro. The research university offered the GLOBE workshop to several New Mexico teachers through its Master of Science Teaching (MST) degree program. After attending the intensive three-day workshop, participating teachers will take their experiences back into the classroom, where their students will be allowed to join GLOBE's international network of students, scientists, and teachers working together to learn more about the environment. The GLOBE workshop was sponsored by New Mexico Tech's MST program, Scientists Organized to Integrate Learning (SOIL), and the Sustainability of Semi-Arid Hydrology and Riparian Areas (SAHRA) consortium.
