Development for this project was supported, in part, by the National Science
Project ATMOSPHERE Audience and Objectives
Audience: Master K-12 teachers and supervisors of science who teach or supervise the teaching of units with significant meteorology content.
Objectives: The Project is directed towards improving teacher effectiveness in generating interest and understandings in science, technology, and mathematics among precollege students. Project ATMOSPHERE is intended to:
(a) introduce master teachers to selected atmospheric science topics and issues
(b) explore and suggest ways in which these understandings and concepts can be employed in school studies
(c) prepare workshop attendees to conduct training sessions on selected meteorology topics and issues for teachers in their home areas
d) support training sessions held by these teachers, on a continuing basis, with instructional resource materials, scientific guidance, and opportunities to interact with professionals in the meteorology field.
