Teacher Professional Development
Winter Day Trips For Teachers K-12
Enrich your understanding of arctic conditions with a visit to the “Home of the World’s Worst Weather” this winter season. On select Wednesdays between January and March, science teachers can apply to join our weather observers on their snowy commute to the Mount Washington Observatory.
Once at the summit you’ll tour our legendary weather station, take part in a weather observation and report your findings live via videoconference to your students back in the classroom.
What’s more, our Education team will provide additional resources including Observatory data to support continued discovery after your trip.
Space is limited to two teachers per trip.
Lunch will be provided.
Advanced booking required; the cost is $200.
To apply, or for more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Additionally, if you'd like to follow along with our participating teachers this winter, check out the Arctic Wednesdays Community Blog.
The Arctic Wednesdays program is presented by an Anonymous Observatory Member and by Kestrel Weather Instruments, with support from White Mountain Oil & Propane and the Kiwanis Club of Mount Washington Valley.
