While the COVID-19 pandemic prevents us from welcoming visitors in person, the UCAR Center for Science Education is bringing cool NCAR science to you virtually—from our homes to yours!

We offer live virtual presentations, recorded demos, and Digital Learning Kits for educators and learners in grades K-12. You’ll find suggested age ranges in each program description, but feel free to join any that look interesting, regardless of age!

Our programs are generally offered via Zoom, but other platforms can be used as needed for individually-scheduled presentations.

Click on the links below for more information on the programs we offer, and keep an eye this page for updated details and additions. Also check out our collection of educational resources that help students learn more about the atmosphere, weather, climate, Sun and space weather, and the Earth as a system.
