ITEM:  2015 Hurricane Preparedness Webinars- registration is open!

The Hurricanes: Science and Society (HSS; www.hurricanescience.org<http://www.hurricanescience.org/>) is excited to announce that it has again partnered with the National Hurricane Center (NHC) and the NOAA Aircraft Operations Center (AOC) to offer hurricane preparedness webinars for 5th grade classes.  We hope your 5th grade classes can join us for this engaging and informative experience!

The purpose of the webinars is to raise awareness about hurricanes in advance of the 2015 North Atlantic hurricane season.  During each free, 1-hour webinar, students will hear from NHC scientists, as well as NOAA AOC personnel 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. Introductory materials and helpful links will also be supplied to all participating educators.

Schools/classes wanting to participate MUST REGISTER in advance. To register, please go to: www.hurricanescience.org/webinar<http://www.hurricanescience.org/webinar>
