GLOBE REGIONAL LEARNING EXPEDITION 2022
2-5 August 2022
The GLOBE Program in Estonia in cooperation with the United States Embassy and the Ministry of Education and Research of the Republic of Estonia is hosting a GLOBE Regional Learning Expedition at Käsmu, Estonia, on 2-5 August 2022 to mark the 25th anniversary of annual expeditions in our country. The aim of the Expedition is to promote STEM education via increased participation in the GLOBE program, linking participants to scientific institutions dealing with environmental issues important today, and providing participants with a unique learning experience in environmental studies.
The Regional Learning Expedition will bring together about 170 students, alumni, teachers, researchers from several countries for GLOBE related activities and discussions. We hope that the expedition will expand communication and cooperation between GLOBE schools across countries. Over the course of 4 days we will learn how to collect various data, do fieldwork and present the results.
Day 1. Introduction day – team building, learning sessions based on GLOBE data sheets, and cultural evening
Day 2. Expedition and fieldwork, presentation of GLOBE research projects
Day 3. Expedition and analysis of results, international guest speakers, GLOBE games
Day 4. Presentations and closing
