Our science is amazing, and we're excited to share it.
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 NCAR and the university community.
Our scientists collaborate with K-12 schools, universities and research institutions to inspire and train future generations in the atmospheric and Earth system sciences.
