Ben Franklin drops in on GLOBE

The historical Ben Franklin, shown here with GLOBE’s Gary Randolph, made a surprise visit to the program’s booth at this year’s National Science Teachers Association conference, held in Philadelphia on March 17–20. Ben discussed his experiences with collecting sea surface temperature data and encouraged teachers to involve their students in hands-on science. GLOBE staff visited with thousands of educators during the conference and hosted a reception. For more, see GLOBE at NSTA 2010.
