STEM Café—The Past, Present and Future of Weather Forecasting

 STEM Café: The Past, Present and Future of Weather Forecasting

March 6, 6:30-8:30 p.m. 

Join us from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 6, at Fireside Grille in Sugar Grove, Illinois, for the next STEM Café—The Past, Present and Future of Weather Forecasting.

Humans have been attempting to predict the weather for thousands of years. However, our current instruments and modeling techniques are quite recent. Computers, weather satellites and networks of meteorological observatories have made weather forecasting much more accurate in recent decades.

At this STEM Café, you’ll learn about the history and recent progress of weather forecasting, including the impact of new technology from Victor Gensini, Ph.D., NIU associate professor of Earth, Atmosphere and Environment. We’ll also hear about future potential advances in forecasting atmospheric conditions.

Northern Illinois University STEM Cafés are part of NIU STEAM and are designed to increase public awareness of the critical role that STEM fields play in our everyday lives. They are offered in partnership with the NIU Alumni Association and made possible with support from Bayer Fund.
