Borrowing from a format used by universities across the country, colleagues from NOAA will each have one slide and three minutes to present on a variety of topics related to tropical weather. These include new technologies for studying hurricanes, providing decision support services, forecasting hurricanes, addressing hazards, communicating forecasts and risks, how NOAA helps re-open ports, and assessing impacts to fisheries. We'll also hear from a NOAA Hurricane Hunter pilot! The webinar also includes time for questions from the audience. Tune in on January 22, from 1:00 - 2:00 CST.

This year, NOAA Boulder's annual 8th Grade Science Days goes virtual, bringing science straight into the student's home. From air quality to bathymetry, space weather to tornadoes, eighth graders across the country and around the world will have the opportunity to put on their science caps and work along with NOAA scientists. Through videos and activities, students will need nothing more than a piece of paper and a pencil to get a more in-depth view of the diverse research going on in the David Skaggs Research Center. Featuring OAR, NWS, and NESDIS, virtual 8th Grade Science Days launched October 9th to school districts across Colorado and beyond.
