United States Department of State Grant
Michael Jabot of SUNY Fredonia will establish a network of 12 schools in the Lake Erie area with grant funding for a digital max/min thermometer and a rain gauge for each school. Instrument shelters and other materials need for instrument installation will be arranged by the grantee. Students will be engaged in studying questions relating to climate and lake effect snow. Measurements will be taken following GLOBE protocols and all data will be reported to GLOBE. Teacher training and follow-on support will be provided by the grantee. Evaluation will in part be through anticipated student submission of research projects to the GLOBE Virtual Student Research Conference.
