SciStarter is recruiting and training schools and youth groups to take SMAP surface soil moisture, surface temperature, and precipitation measurements following GLOBE protocols. Training is also being provided to ECO-Schools joining GLOBE.

As of July 13, 2016, YLACES has provided equipment for 84 schools recruited and trained by SciStarter and 40 ECO-System schools.


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 support for taking simple measurements to teacher professional development and working for pervasive inclusion of student research projects in science teaching.
