GLOBE Estonia Learning Expedition

The GLOBE Program in Estonia in cooperation with Kilingi-Nõmme Gymnasium and the Ministry of Education and Research of the Republic of Estonia is hosting GLOBE Estonia Learning Expedition at Jõulumäe Sports and Recreation Centre from august 13th to 16th.

The aim of the Expedition is networking to promote STEM education via increased participation in the GLOBE program by linking it with scientific institutions dealing with environmental issues in Estonia.
The Learning Expedition will bring together about 130 students, teachers and researchers from Estonia, Latvia and Ukraine.  We hope that the Expedition will expand communication and cooperation between GLOBE schools in Estonia.
