The AMS Education Program promotes scientific literacy through the dissemination of geoscience information to undergraduate students and faculty, and K-12 teachers. AMS Weather Studies, AMS Ocean Studies, and AMS Climate Studies are introductory undergraduate-level courses developed by and licensed through the AMS. The courses are offered in traditional lecture/laboratory, online, or blended learning environments by experienced science faculty or those new to teaching the subject matter. Each course includes a fully integrated set of printed and online learning materials, including a textbook, investigations manual (e-Investigations Manual for AMS Climate Studies), course website, and faculty resources. In addition to undergraduate course development, the AMS provides training for K-12 teachers in these same disciplines through instructional resource development and professional development courses using real-world, current environmental data. The DataStreme courses along with Project Atmosphere, held at the National Weather Service Training Center, and the Maury Project, at the U.S Naval Academy, provide free graduate credits to teachers.
