Teacher Workshop

The Eighth Annual AMS Teacher Workshop is coming to Austin!

Every year during the AMS Annual Meeting, we host a day-long Teacher Workshop specifically designed for 4-12th grade educators. This exciting and thought-provoking workshop provides innovative and effective educational resources, scientific tools, and research in the atmospheric and related sciences. Its primary purpose is to promote relevant STEM learning as well as an awareness of AMS, its services, and its leadership in the fields of weather, water, and climate sciences.
