Weather affects our daily lives in so many ways. Sometimes the weather makes a day at the beach, on the water, at the park, or in the yard an absolute joy, and sometimes we are glued to the television, computer, or phone watching a storm come our way and preparing for what it may bring.
This winter, the NOAA Environmental Science Training Center, in partnership with the National Weather Service and the National Centers for Environmental Prediction, will offer a series of workshops for environmental educators on weather and weather safety in the Chesapeake Bay.
This two-part workshop series will bring together educators and scientists from throughout the region to explore the science that drives our understanding of the weather system, the way it impacts the Chesapeake Bay watershed, and discuss ways to incorporate that science into education programming for students, teachers, and the general public.
One additional reason to attend these workshops is that they will be held at the brand new Center for Weather and Climate Prediction. This is the place where information from around the world is collected so that the science professionals within can provide a seamless suite of environmental analysis, diagnostics, and forecasts from the surface of the sun to the depths of the ocean floor.
Session 1 in the workshop series will be held on January 24. During this workshop we will focus on weather observations, forecasting, and predictions. Click on the link below to register or learn more about Session 1.
Session 2 will be held on February 14th. Don’t forget to add this to your calendar as well, and check the NCBO website for details as they evolve. Click on the link below to register or learn more about Session 2.
