The GLOBE Program is an international K-12 science education program focused on the Earth Sciences. Through a partnership with SciGirls, the GLOBE Implementation Office, located in Boulder, Colorado, hosted a Latina SciGirls-GLOBE club for girls at a local mobile home community clubhouse. The club, which was targeted towards Latina girls ages 8-14, included topics in atmospheric sciences as well as other scientific. This presentation will focus on the club itself, recruitment, activities, challenges, and successes. Additional coverage of resources available for engaging Latino families in STEM programs will be shared.
