More than 50,000 visitors tour the National Weather Center in Norman, Oklahoma each year providing a valuable outreach opportunity for the NOAA Weather Partners co-located in the building. The NOAA Weather Partners are: National Weather Service Norman Forecast Office, Storm Prediction Center, National Severe Storms Laboratory, Warning Decision Training Branch and the Radar Operations Center. Through the use of tours, events, videos, podcasts, handouts and social media, the NOAA Weather Partners are able to engage audiences in weather science on many different levels. Current examples of these tools will be presented.
