The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is an agency that enriches life through science. Our reach goes from the surface of the sun to the depths of the ocean floor as we work to keep citizens informed of the changing environment around them. From daily weather forecasts, severe storm warnings, and climate monitoring to fisheries management, coastal restoration and supporting marine commerce, NOAA’s products and services support economic vitality and affect more than one-third of America’s gross domestic product. NOAA’s dedicated scientists use cutting-edge research and high-tech instrumentation to provide citizens, planners, emergency managers and other decision makers with reliable information they need when they need it.
Under the NOAA 21stCCLC pilot program, NOAA partners worked with local 21stCCLC sites to bring STEM resources and activities into afterschool programming, with the intention of establishing enduring partnerships. In addition to the resources shared on the Projects page, here are some resources for 21stCCLC sites to learn more about NOAA science, connect to NOAA entities near them, and find NOAA activities for use in their local watershed and classroom.
The NOAA education community includes programs, offices, partners, and passionate individuals that represent all of NOAA's mission areas. We are located across the country and around the world. We work to bring you educational resources and opportunities that support NOAA's mission of science, service, and stewardship.
