ALERT

After careful consideration, we are temporarily closing the NCAR Mesa Lab and the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center to the public in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community and protect our employees. This closure will begin March 12 until further notice and includes the cancelation of educational programs and tours of the exhibit areas.

The NCAR Explorer Series talk scheduled for March 11 and March 14, “Catcher in the sky: A talk of modern-day science, research, and aviation,” has also been postponed. Read more details

If you have a reservation for an educational program or tour at the Mesa Lab in the next few weeks, we will contact you with more details. If your reservation is for a date farther out and you haven't heard from us, you can contact Tiffany Fourment at tiffanyf@ucar.edu with questions.

The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) sits nestled against the foothills to the Rocky Mountains.  NCAR's Visitor Center, open to the public seven days a week, offers state-of-the-art exhibits, a variety of public tour options, and custom school field trips.
