What Does a Cloud Feel Like? Join us for a FAST Activity at NCAR

October 8, 2022

FAST - (Fun Activities & Skills Training) logo

We invite you to join us October 8 for a fun and educational visit to the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder. We will provide transportation to students leaving from CCB, but parents are welcome to meet us at NCAR and join the activities. We need to know the exact count of participants for planning purposes. So, please register if you and/or your student will attend. We will plan transportation for the number of students registered for the activity. Students must bring their own packed lunch.

What NCAR Plans for Us

The Mesa Laboratory of the National Center for Atmospheric Research is a historic building in Boulder, Colorado, filled with engaging, interactive exhibits encouraging visitors of all ages to explore atmospheric science, weather, and climate change. Join us for a 2-hour guided, hands-on, sensory tour where we will first explore the weather and climate exhibits together with tactile materials, followed by a short walk on our public trail through the Ponderosa pine trees behind the building. Touch a cloud, explore our changing climate, and learn what you can do to help. Feel free to bring your lunch to enjoy at the Mesa Lab after the tour.

Age Recommendation

Please note that the NCAR program is developed with 5th graders and up in mind, though all ages are welcome.

When: October 8, from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM. We’ll all eat our pre-packed lunches afterwards.
