Summary:Project Atmosphere is a hybrid teacher professional development course with a one-week summer residence experience and online components. It is offered by the American Meteorological Society Education Program in partnership with California University of Pennsylvania (Cal U), and with funding from NOAA. This project is specifically designed for K-12, precollege, teachers who teach science courses with atmospheric content. The course introduces them to the latest technologies for sensing, analyzing, and forecasting weather, and classroom applications. Workshops take place annually each summer at the NOAA National Weather Service Training Center in Kansas City, MO. Participants receive a stipend, lodging, meals, travel funds, and instructional materials, and must be prepared to pay the Cal U academic support fee (see website for details). Three tuition-free graduate credits are earned following successful completion of course requirements including required peer-training sessions. Workshop applications are accepted in the late fall and winter with an application deadline in the early spring.
