NASA data, STEM curriculum and resources will guide us through a “storm” of classroom activities and learning strategies in this unique "climate" of learning. Join us, rain or shine.
Also presenting in this workshop, will be members of the US Air Force Reserve “Hurricane Hunters", as seen on TV, who will share their experiences and expertise in the study of hurricanes and other major storms (their attendance is subject to change, due to unpredicted storm activity).
