2. Helping a lot in spreading and disseminating environmental knowledge and concepts to large number of people.

3. Providing “Hands-on Environmental Experience” on environmental concepts to the students to carry out various measurements.

4. Motivating students to learn about scientific protocols by performing environmental learning activities, which are already introduced as theory in the greened textbooks.
Globe Background
   
Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) is a hands - on international environmental science and educational program. The GLOBE Programme was introduced in April 1994 by U. S. Vice President Al Gore.

GLOBE links students, teachers, and the scientific research community in an effort to learn more about the environment through student data collection and observation. Thus GLOBE is a hands - on, minds - on effort in which students will become the environmental expert.

GLOBE is science and education and not just science education. The GLOBE Program is both an international environmental science research program and environmental science education program, which, by design, includes a tight coupling between the two. The GLOBE Science and education processes are represented in the scientific protocols and the educational learning activities.

GLOBE provides extensive education material to enrich the learning experience of the participating students. These materials include a wide variety of classrooms and field activities to help students place their measurements in a broader context and relate their own local observations to global environmental issues.

The GLOBE Program fosters the creation of a worldwide research team, comprised of students and teachers in collaboration with environmental scientists for the purpose of generating knowledge about the Earth as an interconnected system.

GLOBE learning activities are designed to promote the understanding of science through the use of tools such as visualizations and satellite images.

Using state - of - art technology, GLOBE creates a forum for students to communicate with their peers around the world, thus fostering alliances among students and increasing not only their environmental understanding but also their cultures and their sense of global community.
