GLOBE Partner UCAR Center for Science Education (SciEd) is hosting regular “Meet the Experts Live Question and Answer Sessions.” Join SciEd as they talk with experts to learn about what they do in their work, the highlights and challenges, and how it impacts us and our world. Then ask them anything you want to know about what it's like to do their jobs! The program will last approximately 20 minutes.

(NOTE: You can send questions in advance of the program, and they will be shared during the Q&A. You can also submit questions during the talk, and experts will answer as many as possible!)

Join the Upcoming Session!

The next session will take place on 04 March, at 11:00 a.m. MT: “Cars, Trains, and Weather.” Curtis Walker, a scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research’s (NCAR's) Research Applications Laboratory, studies how weather impacts travel, specifically cars and trains. Whether you're traveling to work or school, driving across the country on vacation, or waiting for a package, all kinds of weather can have big impacts on surface transportation. Walker will share his story of how he came to work at this unique intersection, overview weather impacts to roads and rails, and preview the future of self-driving cars in a world of weather!
