Welcome to our Education & Outreach Resource Page! One of NOAA's cross-cutting priorities is Environmental Literacy, Outreach, and Education. On this page you will find educational/safety resources, information for prospective meteorologists, and information on how to schedule an office tour or presentation. If you have a question for a meteorologist, feel free to send us an email at


Office Information


Office Tours and Presentations


Fill out our outreach request form to request a presentation for your school/civic group, tour of our office, etc. and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

School/Group Presentations: Meteorologists are available to speak to your classroom/group on a variety of topics (e.g., weather safety/preparedness, severe thunderstorms, hurricanes, etc.). The presentations can either be in-person or virtual.

Office Tours: Tours of our office will generally be held Monday through Friday and must be scheduled at least 3 weeks in advance (to ensure proper staffing). Tours will be conducted on "fair weather" days only and group leaders will need to contact the NWS tour leader (via email or phone) assigned to them a couple days prior as tours will need to be rescheduled if hazardous weather is expected.

We prefer that tour groups be ~20 people or less with attendees at least middle school age, although larger groups can also be divided. 

All adults must be U.S. citizens and show a photo ID. Minors will only be allowed to be accompanied by an adult with an ID.
