The CIRES/NOAA Science-at-Home webinar series is excited to launch again this fall semester after a successful spring series. This series is intended to connect middle and high school classrooms that are now in the virtual/remote learning landscape with scientists. Each webinar features a 10-15 minute presentation by a scientists about how they got into science, what they do as a scientist, and what it is that they research, followed by 10-15 minutes of live Q&A.
These webinars will be held weekly on Tuesdays at 1:00pm MT during the fall semester (possibly into the spring).
Each month will feature an overarching theme:
- September = Natural Hazards and Resilience
- October = Climate (from the atmosphere to the oceans and anything in between)
- November = Polar Science
- December = Science Communication
All webinars will be live streamed with Microsoft Live Events (the URL changes each week, please click on the webinars below to get the upcoming URL).
If you would like weekly email reminders about the series (and each presenter's direct URL in your inbox), please register.
Looking for our monthly series CIRES/NOAA Serie La Ciencia-en-Casa? We'll have monthly presentations in Spanish on each of the themes above.
