GLOBE Star 2

Madagascar teacher training workshop

The Africa Regional Office, in collaboration with The University of Alaska Fairbanks, Brooklyn College, Seasons and Biomes, CloudSat and the Malagasy Ministry of National Education had a training workshop in Antananarivo, Madagascar in March. Teachers from 20 regions of Madagascar participated at this workshop where the GLOBE protocols Atmosphere, Hydrology, Soils, Landcover and Phonology were taught (Pic 5). Dr Rebecca Boger from Seasons and Biomes also worked with the teachers and Dr Lala from the University of Madagascar on the Mosquito / Malaria protocol (pic 6). The GLOBE Africa Regional office supplied 20 weather stations and equipment for the workshop (pic 7). Peter Falcon from CloudSat then went on to Cameroon, Kenya and Tanzania before returning to the USA.

The regional office would like to acknowledge and thank Dr Elena Sparrow and the Seasons and Biomes team for their continuous support for Africa initiatives. We would also like to thank the Malagasy Education department for their support and pledge to hold the next Regional Meeting as well as all the other people, institutions and organizations that contributed to the success of this workshop.
