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 divided between an on-line distance learning component (in July 2019) and a one-week in-residence component. The in-residence portion of the workshop is to be held at the National Weather Service Training Center, Kansas City, Missouri, from 28 July to 3 August 2019.
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 and CMOS.
Because this does not include the travel to and from Kansas City, CMOS also provides a travel subsidy to the selected Canadian participant.
Previous Canadian participants found their attendance a very rewarding and significant experience.
