24th Symposium on Education

The theme for the 2015 AMS Annual Meeting is “Fulfilling the Vision of Weather, Water, and Climate Information for Every Need, Time, and Place”. People, businesses, and governments depend increasingly on weather, water, and climate information to address their specific needs, as well as on the tools to understand and interpret this information. We are converging on a day when such information is integrated into peoples’ daily decisions and actions. This revolution in highly targeted customized information - delivered when and where it is most useful - will make our lives safer, more productive, and more enjoyable. The challenge for our community is this: collaborate and innovate to develop – and ultimately deliver – actionable, user-specific weather, water, and climate information across all spatial and temporal scales in support of our nation’s safety, health, and prosperity.  The AMS meeting will explore the many topics required for our community to implement this vision. The Symposium on Education is specifically looking to share educational materials, outreach strategies, and effective programs for informing stakeholders, students and the community about weather, water and climate. 

Abstracts can be submitted for sessions with the following themes, including three jointly sponsored sessions and one themed joint session:

  • Pre-College Education Initiatives
  • University Education Initiatives
  • Innovations in University Instruction - Synoptic Meteorology
  • Outreach and Broader Impacts
