GLOBE (Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment) Program Taiwan 自201212月起,由科技部補助經費,國立中央大學執行,並於20139月正式和美國簽約之國際合作計畫,是個強調全世界親自動手做的基礎科學與教育計畫。總計畫(GLOBE Program)由美國NASA、NOAA及NSF三方協力合作執行,截至20186月,已有120國家參與,近32,000位受訓過的老師及近33,000所學校加入,並且總計有超過1000萬的學生參與GLOBE計畫進行觀測,觀測資料達1.5億多筆資料。GLOBE連結了學生(對象主要為五到十八歲之青少年)、老師與科學家,由老師將計畫資源融入其課堂教學中,以帶領同學進行探究式學習,使學生像科學家一樣地學習科學、進行科學研究

 

GLOBE Program希望透過探究教學方式,由老師帶領學生觀察環境,進而啟發學生對環境與地球系統科學的關懷及好奇心,加強學生科學素養與學習成。為了達此目的,計畫提供教師多元教學素材,改善其教學策略及方法,建立科學學習網絡,期能提升國內基礎科學教育的教學環境。

 

The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) program in Taiwan was funded by Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) and implemented by National Central University (NCU) since December, 2012. It is a worldwide hands-on science and education program.

GLOBE Program provides students and the public worldwide with the opportunity to participate in data collection and the scientific process, and contribute meaningfully to our understanding of the Earth system and global environment. GLOBE brings together students, teachers and scientists through the GLOBE Schools Network in support of student learning and research.
