What is it like to work at the National Center for Atmospheric Research? Students can go behind-the-scenes, live with NCAR experts to ask questions and learn about their work
PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: How do we observe and learn about something that is 93 million miles away from Earth and burns at a temperature of up to 27 million degrees Fahrenheit?!
