The workshop introduces them to the latest technologies for sensing, analyzing, and forecasting these technologies in the classroom. The workship will take place at the National Weather Service (NWS) Training Center in Kansas City, Missouri, and features lectures and seminars from the NWS and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration staff. Participants receive graduate credit, a $600 stipend, lodging, meals, travel funds, tuition, and instructional materials.

Teachers and supervisors interested in promoting minority participation in science are particularly encouraged to apply.
