The governor will present the annual awards for “High Impact Research” on November 15 to teams from the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and three other Colorado-based research centers for scientific breakthroughs.
Students, parents, and teachers are invited to enjoy the hands-on science and Halloween fun, activities, workshops, and presentations. Touch Ice Age fossils from Snowmass, "tour" the African Serengeti, and explore much more at this free, fun event.
New research focusing on the Houston area suggests that widespread urban development alters weather patterns in a way that can make it easier for pollutants to accumulate during warm summer weather instead of being blown out to sea.
