Teacher Summer Workshops
In collaboration of the American Meteorological Society (AMS), the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the US Naval Academy, Canadian Geographic Education (Can Geo Education) and the Canadian National Committee/Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (CNC/SCOR) , CMOS offers two two-week summer workshops for teachers from Kingergarten to Grade 12. One workshop is in Atmospheric Sciences, the other is in Oceanographic Sciences.  

All expenses are paid for the two weeks of workshops. A travel subsidy is also included.

  Project Atmosphere
For several years, CMOS has been invited to select a Canadian teacher to participate on  Project Atmosphere

This is a summer workshop for pre-college teachers of atmospheric science topics sponsored by the American Meteorological Society (AMS) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) of the United States. Presentations at the Workshop are made by some of the most respected American scientists in the fields of atmospheric and oceanographic sciences. Participants have returned with material, resources and teaching modules readily adaptable to classroom presentations.

The workshop is held at the National Weather Service Training Center, Kansas City, Missouri,  in July 2018.

There are only 24 teachers selected each year, with only 1 from Canada.
The essential expenses for the selected teacher are all paid by AMS/NOAA, with contributions from CMOS and the Canadian Geographic Education (Can Geo Education) .

Because this does not include the travel to and from Kansas City, CMOS and Can Geo Education together also provide a travel subsidy worth CDN$1,300 to the selected Canadian participant. 

Previous Canadian participants found their attendance a very rewarding and significant experience.

History of Project Atmosphere
Canadian teachers started attending the workshops in 1994.
