Open House to Celebrate NCAR/UCAR 50th Anniversary (June 5)

(June 5, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.; Boulder, Colo.)

NCAR and UCAR invite the local community to visit three campuses in conjunction with their 50th anniversary. Stop by for a rare firsthand look at the people, instruments, and facilities that drive the atmospheric sciences. Staff will be on hand to explain their work, demonstrate their instruments, show their labs, introduce the NCAR aircraft, and more. The Mesa Lab, Foothills Lab, and Research Aviation Facility will each offer a different experience for visitors.

In addition, the GLOBE Program Office staff will be on hand to offer fun-filled, hands-on science exploration activities for kids, families and teachers. Weather balloon launches, tours of the wind tunnel, demonstrations of computational and observational technologies, scientists’ presentations of their work in meteorology, weather, climate, air chemistry, sun and space weather, and the Earth system will provide visitors with an inside look at the facilities, programs, and research of NCAR and UCAR.
