25 GLOBE Schools in Guatemala


Grant amount:


At the request of the Latin America and Caribbean Regional Office of GLOBE, YLACES has provided equipment for 25 schools in Guatemala. Teachers from these schools are being trained in GLOBE at a workshop April 21, 2017. The training is in atmosphere and hydrosphere protocols and teachers will be provided with equipment for students to take measurements of air and water temperature, precipitation, pH of precipitation and water, and relative humidity.

This grant is helping launch the GLOBE Program in Guatemala.


Youth Learning as Citizen Environmental Scientists assists and rewards the implementation of inquiry-based, experiential science education where students do science and contribute to understanding of our environment through recognition and financial reward programs.

Grants range from equipment and supplies for taking environmental measurements to recognition and support for students presenting their research projects and working for pervasive inclusion of student research projects in science teaching.
