AMS Summer Workshop: Project ATMOSPHERE

Dates: July 13-25, 2014

Application deadline: March 28, 2014

Project ATMOSPHERE is a free teacher professional development program offered by the American Meteorological Society’s Education Program. Directed toward improving Earth science literacy and teacher effectiveness by generating interest in science, technology and mathematics among students at precollege levels, the two-week workshop is held at NOAA’s National Weather Service Training Center in Kansas City, MO. K-12 teachers who teach weather in the classroom are encouraged to apply and will receive three free graduate credits. The workshop will introduce teachers to the latest technologies and techniques for sensing, analyzing, and forecasting weather, as well as explore ways these concepts can be implemented in classrooms. Attendees will help promote weather education in their home regions by conducting training sessions in atmospheric science during the following school year.
