Earth Day Citizen Scientist Program

Saturday, April 22, 2017

NASA needs citizen scientists to make observations and recordings of data that they do not have the resources to do. The April 22nd library program will introduce audience members to the GLOBE program which gathers information on cloud coverage from people around the world to aide scientists in data collection and scientific progress. We will help patrons load the GLOBE OBSERVER APP onto their phones so they can make and record their cloud observations which will be used by scientists in their atmospheric studies. We will watch a short video on citizen scientists and after everyone has the program loaded onto their phones we will go outside to make observations and use the app. Handouts on cloud coverage and how to use the GLOBE APP will be given to audience members.
