Oklahoma meteorologists, engineers, programmers, and weather support staff have been encouraging K-12 students to learn more about weather, climate, engineering, computer programming, and general science by participating in our scientific mentorship program. Mentors answer email, visit schools, act as science fair judges, and conduct tours of their workplace.
Scientific mentors must have a B.S. or higher degree to participate. Scientists from anywhere are welcome to be involved, but those from Oklahoma or OU and OSU graduates are especially encouraged to participate.
