Find out when the Atmospheric, Oceanic and Space Sciences (AOSS) building opens its doors to the public on Saturday, April 6, 2013 from 10am to 2pm. Visitors will get a closer look at our research, as well as have the opportunity to ask questions and engage in hands-on educational activities.

Here is a preview of things to do:

  • Try out computer-based educational applets from the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS) to explore and test your knowledge of weather concepts;
  • Check out aerial photography and satellite imagery of Wisconsin from the WisconsinView program;
  • See satellite images generated on site at the Space Science and Engineering Center (SSEC) projected onto a 3D Globe; and
  • Discover what researchers with the Antarctic Meteorological Research Center do and what it’s like to work and live down in Antarctica.

Don’t forget to take a tour to the roof of AOSS – take in the spectacular views of Madison and learn why we have so many satellite dishes on the roof. Tours leave the AOSS lobby every half hour with the last tour on April 6 leaving at 1:30pm.

AOSS is one of more than a dozen Exploration Destinations open during the UW-Madison’s Science Expeditions which “welcomes learners and explorers of all ages to campus to experience science as exploring the unknown.”
