CIMMS carries out outreach and education programs to educate, engage, advise, and inform the public, teachers, and students. These efforts support NOAA’s cross-cutting priority to promote environmental literacy.
Outreach and educational activities will lead to:
- Public awareness of mesoscale meteorological phenomena and their potential impact on people’s lives
- K-12 teachers equipped with valuable ideas and resources for teaching weather and climate concepts
- Enlightened college interns guided by mentors through unique summer research projects
- Diverse, outstanding graduate students
CIMMS researchers have received numerous awards recognizing their work. For more, visit our Awards page.
