Our science is amazing, and we're excited to share it.
NSF NCAR Education, Engagement & Early-Career Development (EdEC) is committed to inspiring, engaging and informing the public about the science going on at NCAR and in our broader scientific community. We support and train future generations of diverse scientists and engineers by partnering with K-12 schools, universities and research institutions to forge connections and strengthen programs in the Earth system sciences.
We aim to inspire, engage and inform the public about the atmospheric and Earth system sciences conducted by NSF NCAR and the university community.
Education & Engagement in NSF NCAR Labs
Many NSF NCAR labs sponsor their own efforts to inspire students and the public through the insights their scientists are gaining.
The Atmospheric Chemistry Observations & Modeling (ACOM) laboratory offers seminars, fellowships, and professional development.
The Computational & Information Systems Laboratory (CISL) creates public exhibits at the NSF NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center, and runs a summer internship.
The Earth Observing Laboratory (EOL) runs a variety of activities, including online resources and open houses for local communities during field campaigns.
The High Altitude Observatory (HAO) maintains resources about our Sun and important solar scientists.
Education & Training at UCAR
UCAR's community programs offer a variety of education and training opportunities for K-12 teachers and students, undergraduate and graduate students, and professionals.
