FORTCAST (Fort Collins Atmospheric Scientists) is the local chapter of the American Meteorological Society (AMS). The chapter serves as a professional, service, educational, and social organization for individuals in Northern Colorado from a wide variety of atmospheric science backgrounds. One of the organization’s foremost goals is outreach to the local community and participates in several events each year designed to teach school-aged students about weather and more generally get them excited about science.
The largest of these outreach events is the Colorado WeatherFest, an afternoon of weather and climate fun for all ages. Last year’s event featured a weather balloon launch, drone demonstrations from the CSU C3LOUD-EX research team, and hands-on activities staffed by people from the National Weather Service, the Center for Severe Weather Research, the Colorado Climate Center, the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere, Ball Aerospace, and more.
Led by: CSU Atmospheric Sciences graduate FORTCAST program.
