The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) program is a worldwide hands-on science and education program. GLOBE brings together students, teachers and scientists through the GLOBE Schools Network in support of student learning and research. GLOBE is science and education, not just science education. As a science and education program, GLOBE neither begins nor ends with data collection. Scientists collect data to gain understanding, and students can do the same. Teachers are encouraged to stimulate and reinforce their students' natural interest in their surroundings. Student interest can take form in questions that they want to answer, and taking data is part of addressing their questions. Recording, assembling, and analyzing data are a necessary part of the process leading to answers, new insights, and refined questions, and data reporting is essential for GLOBE implementation to give students an authentic science experience.The GLOBE Taiwan was signed up the agreement on 7th Sep., 2013 in Washington DC, USA. There are more than 680 GLOBE students and 80 teachers joining this program. We cultivate trainers, teachers and students and promote the international interaction. As to the cultivation, we hold international workshops to help trainers and teachers investigating and researching in atmosphere, soil, hydrology and land cover fields. It ensure teachers being able to promote their schools, utilize the teaching materials and upload daily data through GLOBE website. As to the interaction of students, we annually hold the science fair for GLOBE students in Taiwan. Besides, we provide opportunities for students participating international learning expeditions.After executing GLOBE Program for 3 years, we still need more time to implement and promote it. Therefore, we have three goals in the following three years, which are strengthening the science learning community of scientists, trainers, teachers and students, expanding the research fields, and creating the teaching materials according to the local features.
