As a part of NC State University, reaching out to the academic community is important to North Carolina Institute for Climate Studies staff members. Educational outreach is a significant component of our mission, with members of our outreach team actively involved in supporting climate literacy for K-12 students as well as others in our local and regional community. Whether working with students in the classroom or reaching out to the community at large, our staff are available to provide climate and data information and resources on a variety of levels. To this end, NCICS staff participate in a number of small- and large-scale events throughout the year.

Some of our past event participation includes: ​

  • Mountain Science Expo
  • Western Regional Science Fair
  • Isothermal Community College Science and Technology Expo
  • Schiele Museum “Weather Proof!” event
  • World View Global Education Summit

Resources for Educators

Are you looking for classroom or homeschool activities and ideas for teaching and learning about weather, climate, or data science? The outreach team at NCICS has compiled a list of STEM Resources, including links to a wide range of websites which foster learning of weather, climate, and data information.
