Teachers, do you have students who like science and math and might enjoy stomping around on the shores of local creeks, streams and rivers? This session is for them!

Join this session for a great career overview from a hydrologist, who is also a meteorologist by training, for the National Weather Service. His interest in this field started as a fear of thunderstorms when he was young. As he learned more about thunderstorms and weather in general, he realized that he wanted to pursue a career in this field.

He is in the right place at the right time as Iowa seems to have a growing history of heavy rain events. Those wet spring we have increase the flood risk and that is where his work is vital to the safety of the public and to property.

During this session he will talk about the work he does and why it is important. He also does a good deal of work with outside government agencies so communication and the ability to work on teams is important. He also provides hydrology training for the meteorologists who he works with. Sign up today to learn more about this great career!
