Thursday, April 18, 2019 11:50 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The Hurricanes: Science and Society (HSS) team at the University of Rhode Island’s Graduate School of Oceanography (URI/GSO) is hosting FREE hurricane preparedness webinars in conjunction with Hurricane Preparedness Week and the 2019 Hurricane Awareness Tour (HAT). The HSS team is again partnering with NOAA’s National Hurricane Center (NHC) and Aircraft Operations Center (AOC) to provide webinars, for 4th through 6th grade classes, that will broadcast LIVE from the HAT. The webinars will last approximately 1 hour, and will allow your classes to learn about hurricanes and their potential impacts, connect with hurricane experts, see the planes used to investigate and understand hurricanes, learn about hurricane-related careers (including “hurricane hunters”), and ask questions in real time.

On Monday, May 6, 2019, at 10am EDT, a webinar focused on Northeast hurricane science/history will take place in conjunction with the Quonset/North Kingstown, RI stop of the HAT.   

On Thursday, May 9, at 10am EDT, a second webinar on hurricanes (but not focused on the Northeast) will be offered, in conjunction with the Charlotte, North Carolina, stop of the HAT.

Schools/classes wanting to participate MUST REGISTER in advance.

Please note, all webinars will be archived to the HSS website4th-6th grade webinars page, about 3-4 weeks after the HAT.
