This event has passed, but check out more Scouting events here.


The NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) Center for Weather & Climate Predication hosts their Open House on September 15, 2018, and Scouts of all ages are invited! As the United States “home” of weather, water, and climate experts, this facility seeks to create a Weather-Ready Nation by taking advanced action!

During this unique open house, visitors can watch a weather balloon launch, tour laboratories, and even hear from a hurricane hunter pilot! Hands-on activities will be available for the kids and food trucks will be available, too!

Adults are reminded to bring a government-issued photo ID. The University of Maryland will provide shuttle bus service throughout the afternoon from the College Park Metro station; free parking will also be available in the property’s parking garage.

The NOAA Center for Weather & Climate Prediction (NCWCP) is located on the campus of the University of Maryland Research Park, located at 5830 University Research Ct., College Park, MD 20740.
