Project Atmosphere

I had the pleasure to attend the American Meteorological Society's (AMS) Project Atmosphere for two weeks at the National Weather Services National Training Center in Kansas City.  This teaching workshop was an intense education on meteorology and gave us the chance to meet the top people at the National Weather Service and AMS.  As part of this training, I will be providing two workshops for teachers in the near future on how to use the AMS resources.  If you are interested, contact me.

Project Atmosphere was a great experience, not only meeting the top people at the National Weather Service, NOAA, and AMS, but getting to meet and work with teachers from all over the United States and Canada.
