NOAA’s Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS) will host a virtual science fair during spring 2019 where students use next generation satellite data to investigate a weather scenario. As part of the GOES-R Education Proving Ground project (http://cimss.ssec.wisc.edu/education/goesr/) small teams of students in grades 6 to 14 will be encouraged to conduct research using GOES-16 or GOES-17 data then submit their projects to an on-line competition. We envision three winning science fair projects: middle school, high school and grades 13/14 (community college or university). Students from winning projects will receive $25 Amazon gift cards plus official GOES-T launch viewing invitations (but no travel support). The coaches of the winning teams (3 total) will receive GOES-T launch invitations and also have their travel paid to the American Meteorology Society (AMS) Centennial meeting in January 2020 to present in the education symposium. This poster presentation will include all of these details plus science fair submission guidelines. Handouts will be available for take-away.
