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:

  1. Public awareness of mesoscale meteorological phenomena and their potential impact on people’s lives
  2. K-12 teachers equipped with valuable ideas and resources for teaching weather and climate concepts
  3. Enlightened college interns guided by mentors through unique summer research projects
  4. Diverse, outstanding graduate students

CIMMS researchers have received numerous awards recognizing their work. For more, visit our Awards page.
