Our Outreach

As a local chapter of the American Meteorological Society and National Weather Association, we try to do our part to enrich the local community through science. Our outreach programs include events on campus, such as Rutgers Day, Cook/Douglass Community Day, and the Rutgers Involvement Fair. We also partake in many teaching opportunities aimed toward the youth of the community by visiting local schools, and also giving school tour groups showing children the Rutgers Weather Station located at Rutgers Gardens, and showing them around the WeatherWatchers studio where forecasts are broadcasted for the public. 

To enrich our own knowledge of meteorology, we take annual club trips to the Northeast Storms Conference and American Meteorological Society Conference as well as other short meteorology related trips. More information about our trips can be found under the Group Trips tab. 

Fall 2015 Involvement Fair. Every year Rutgers hosts an involvement fair for students to learn about the different clubs and activities students can participate in. Rutgers Meteorology club had a table where we displayed our famous tornado in a bottle, plus Kevin Gaynor showed off our new experiment Weather in a Tank. 

October 2015 tour for Nutley Middle School. 30 children toured our Rutgers Weather Station at Rutgers Gardens, and the WeatherWatchers studio
