National Weather Center
The Seminole State College President’s Leadership Class traveled to Norman on March 12 to visit the National Weather Center. During their visit, the SSC students toured the multi-level facility and saw storm vehicles, equipment and other technology used out in the field and at the center to predict and track the weather. While there, they also learned about the OU School of Meteorology and the types of jobs available with a major in that field of study.
Science on a Sphere
PLC student Hannah Lay of Earlsboro pretends to balance the “Science on a Sphere”– a 6-foot-diameter hollow fiberglass sphere located inside the atrium of the National Weather Center in Norman. A popular feature of the sphere is showing a month of weather in motion within just a few minutes.
