Learn how to establish your own classroom technology studios and space weather action centers. Space Weather Action Center (S.W.A.C.) is a web-based portal, replicating the functions of the NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center and providing access to NASA mission science results, observation techniques, and analysis methods used by real astronomers. Participants will learn how to create a “nightly” news report on space weather that predicts impending effects on Earth. Free NASA support materials. Ten Green Screen multimedia software packages will be given out as door prizes.
