Annual GLOBE Student Research Symposium

On Saturday, May 23rd from 1-3pm. Join the interns from Antioch, Pinole and Skyline high schools as they discuss their GLOBE research projects.

Earth Team is a nonprofit that guides urban youth throughout the East Bay to become environmental stewards through experiential education, skills development, and the building of community connections.

Due to COVID-19, this year’s Annual GLOBE Symposium at Moss Landing Marine Labs has been cancelled.  Earth Team interns are coming together over Zoom to present their research on toxic algae blooms in Oakland, and urban water quality trends in Pinole and Antioch. Organizational partners, local scientists and government officials are invited to join Saturday, May 23rd to listen to presentations and ask questions about student research.
