A new University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) Center for Science Education (SciEd) Satellites and Weather Teaching Box is now available!

UCAR teaching boxes combine hands-on learning activities, science content, and additional resources that can be used as educational tools. They are collections of classroom-ready and standards-aligned activities, content, and multimedia that build student understanding of science, technology, engineering, and math. All materials are freely available online.

This new collection of educational resources is designed to help middle school students learn how satellites “see” the atmosphere and how they help with weather forecasting. When there's a hurricane offshore, somewhere in the middle of the Atlantic, how do we know about it and where it’s heading? Researchers use satellites to monitor the weather worldwide. This is particularly helpful in locations where there are no weather stations, like in the middle of the ocean.
