With the 2020 Hurricane Season just 2 months away, the National Hurricane Center is bringing hurricane awareness into classrooms through a series of webinars. These region-specific webinars will showcase National Hurricane Center experts, helping teachers and students at a time many are pursuing distance learning lesson plans as part of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
According to the National Hurricane Center, these webinars will focus on the job of a meteorologist, the weather hazards that come with hurricanes, and will describe how meteorologists get out weather information before a storm arrives.
Two identical webinars will be provided in 7 regions; there’s a maximum capacity of 500 participants per webinar. Registration links to each webinar will be provided roughly a week before they’re scheduled. Participants should only register for a single webinar in their region.
