During the summer of 1993, Project ATMOSPHERE, in cooperation with the University of Oklahoma School of Meteorology, conducted a workshop to enhance both the meteorological background and leadership skills of AMS Atmospheric Education Resource Agents (AERAs). Fifty-eight teachers representing 39 states and the District of Columbia attended this workshop, which focused on atmospheric water processes and severe local storms. In addition to lectures and laboratory activities, AERAs also visited a variety of research and operational support facilities in the Norman area. This workshop was the third phase of training for AERAs, who represent the AMS in their local areas, providing instructional guidance for teachers and curricular input on the atmospheric sciences to their respective local and state educational agencies.
