Charla electrónica sobre huracanes para estudiantes de 5to grado (NOAA/NHC/URI).

El grupo "Huracanes: Ciencia y Sociedad" de la Escuela Graduada de Oceanografía, Universidad de Rhode Island, anuncia una colaboración con el Centro Nacional de Huracanes para ofrecer charlas electrónicas sobre cómo prepararse para el paso delos huracanes. Estas charlas fueron creadas para estudiantes de 5to grado y sus maestros.

Las charlas interactivas tendrán una duración de una hora y en las mismas hablarán científicos del Centro Nacional de Huracanes, meteorólogos y los oficiales de la NOAA que vuelan los aviones caza-huracanes. También se incluirán videos, gráficas, simulaciones computadorizadas y otros medios. Los estudiantes podrán hacerles preguntas a los científicos antes de la charla.

Aquellos que deseen participar, deben registrarse con antelación. Para más detalles, la persona contacto es Holly Morin (holly_morin@mail.uri.edu).

The Hurricanes: Science and Society (HSS) team at the University of Rhode Island's Graduate School of Oceanography (URIO/GSO) is excited to announce that it is again partnering with the National Hurricane Center (NHC) to offer hurricane preparedness webinars for 5th grade students in U.S. regions that are impacted by hurricanes.

During these these 1-hour webinars, students will hear from NHC scientists and forecasters, as well as NOAA Aircraft Operations Center (AOC) officers that fly into hurricanes. A presentation on region-specific hurricane science and preparedness will be given with interactive questions prompting student responses. Classroom questions will also be collected in advance of the webinar; as many of these questions as possible will be answered by the hurricane scientists.  Many videos, visualizations, graphics, and other media will be included to engage students.  Groups will also receive a virtual tour of the National Hurricane Center.

We hope your classes will take advantage of this exciting opportunity!  Webinars will be organized regionally (U.S. Gulf Coast, Southeast Atlantic Coast, and Northeast Atlantic Coast).  Dates and times are listed below.  Schools/classes wanting to participate MUST REGISTER in advance.  Please visit the National Hurricane Center: 2013 5th Grade Webinars page in the Resources section of the Hurricanes: Science and Society website for more detail and registration information. Please note, registration will close one week in advance of each webinar.

If you have any questions, please contact Holly Morin (holly_morin@mail.uri.edu).
