The Science Directorate at NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, VA is seeking in-service and pre-service teachers to come to NASA Langley during summer 2018 and work with our science education team to become GLOBE certified teachers.

As a part of the professional learning experience, teachers will engage in GLOBE protocol data collection and analysis, learn about science connections to NASA, and participate in lectures from a diverse group of GLOBE Partners serving various communities and grade bands. The GLOBE Program ( encourages an international community of teachers, students, scientists, and public citizens to collect and analyze environmental data. As a result of the experience, teachers will gain a better understanding of how GLOBE can be implemented across a variety of school and community settings. Interns will complete an individual GLOBE protocol focus with oral presentation and summary of work, followed by a culminating activity that involves support of a GLOBE Protocol training to further develop their role as a GLOBE Teacher.

To be considered for the opportunity, participants need to complete the internship application which is posted through NASA’s Intern program: Start by creating an account on OSSI by clicking "Register as a Student." All applicants, including in-service educators, will need to register as a "student". These positions are open to in-service and pre-service teachers.
