Custom Programs

Rediscover your passion for science education through experiential training sessions at our place or yours. We will design a customized program, tailored to your group’s specific needs, with take-home lessons, activities, and experiments gleaned from our many years of scientific exploration on Mount Washington.

Past programs have included such topics as:

  • Weather basics
  • Fundamentals of climate
  • Mountain meteorology
  • Introduction to forecasting
  • Alpine and boreal ecology
  • White Mountain geology
  • Discovering distance learning technology

Programs may be conducted at our weather station on Mount Washington, the Weather Discovery Center in North Conway, New Hampshire, or via interactive video conference. Fees are determined based on group size and training type. Please contact us to design your program.
