(Jan. 6-10; Austin, Texas)
The American Meterological Society (AMS) is hosting its 93rd Annual Meeting in 2013. In conjunction with this event, AMS will also host its 12th annual WeatherFest on Sunday, Jan. 6. This is a free, super-sized science fair to inform and educate about weather, climate, and related fields.
Scholarships are available to local and national educators interested in hosting an informal activity booth at this event. As an added bonus, AMS offers a workshop on Jan. 7 for K-8 educators, and another on Jan. 8 for high school educators, that cover everything from weather basics to more advanced topics covered in our national education science standards. These workshops connect teachers with some of the most innovative scientists working on weather and climate issues. If you are interested in applying for a WeatherFest scholarship, or prefer to enroll in the workshops only, please visit http://bit.ly/QjtKph.
