Project Atmosphere

This project is an educational initiative of American Meteorological Society , designed to foster improved science, mathematics and technical education in grades K-12, through the use of atmospheric topics as the vehicle. A partnership of scientists, educators, government and industry is focusing upon attracting young students into continued study of science, mathematics and technology. One of the features of Project ATMOSPHERE has been the formation of the Atmospheric Education Resource Agent Network (AERA). At least one master teacher in each state has been selected to act as a resource agent. Contact the AERA agent for your state .
