The OU Summer Academies provide students with hands-on experiences in Math, Science, Engineering and Technology while exposing them to life on a college campus. The Summer Academies are funded by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education.

This Meteorology Academy offers a one-week residential program for students entering 9th and 10th grades focused on weather. Students will attend classes in the National Weather Center surrounded by top research scientists and operational meteorologists.

Students will learn about atmospheric interactions from fronts to thunderstorm development, how data are collected from instrumentation, how to analyze weather maps, and how to interpret forecast discussions. Students will be exposed to meteorology careers including: operational forecasters at NOAA’s Storm Prediction Center and the National Weather Service’s Norman Forecast office; field researchers who operate mobile radars; and local television broadcasters.

Thirty students will be selected for this academy.
