NCAR/UCAR Education Programs

NCAR's Advanced Study Program

The ASP mission is to help NCAR and the scientific communities it serves prepare for the future, and encourage the development of early career scientists.

The COMET® Program is a world-wide leader in support of education and training for the environmental sciences, delivering scientifically relevant and instructionally progressive products and services.

Computational and Information Systems Lab

Teaching, inspiring, and helping future generations of scientists, CISL is active in several outreach, mentoring, and professional development programs in addition to managing the NCAR Wyoming Supercomputing Center.

Digital Learning Sciences is a mission-centered, not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving learning through the use of digital content and tools.  DLS is a joint center of UCAR Community Programs and the Institute of Cognitive Science at the University of Colorado at Boulder.

DLESE supports Earth system science education by providing access to high-quality collections of educational resources from a distributed community involving educators, students, and scientists.

NCAR's Earth Observing Laboratory develops and deploys NSF Lower Atmospheric Observing Facilities (LAOF) and provides field project support and data services. Its educational programs primarily serve the higher education community.

The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) program is a worldwide hands-on, primary and secondary school-based science and education program designed to engage students in the process of science.

NSDL provides high quality online educational resources for teaching and learning of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. It is based at UCAR.

UCAR Center for Science Education

The UCAR Center for Science Education helps to connect NCAR and UCAR science advances and innovations to the needs and priorities of diverse people by helping them to learn, understand, value, and apply science in their daily lives.

Unidata Program

Unidata's mission is to transform the geosciences community, research, and education by providing innovative data services and tools to enhance Earth-system education and research in an era of increasing data complexity and multidisciplinary integration. 

UCAR's Visiting Scientist Programs (VSP)

UCAR's Visiting Scientist Programs help to prepare the next generation of weather and climate scientific leaders and workforce by supporting effective and collaborative fellowship, visitor, and workshop programs that meet emerging training and research needs.
