The National Center for STEM Elementary Education at St. Catherine University will host the 16th annual GLOBE partners meeting, "Building a global community of Citizen Scientists," July 15-20.

The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) program is a worldwide hands-on, primary and secondary school-based science and education program.

More than 100 educators from all over the world will be attending the meeting and for the first time, their students will have the opportunity to share their research projects in a Student Science Symposium during the poster sessions of the meeting.

St. Catherine University’s St. Paul campus and the Crowne Plaza Hotel in nearby Bloomington will be the hubs for a week of innovative training, sharing discoveries and expanding the GLOBE community.
