CIMSS Student Workshop on Atmospheric, Satellite, and Earth Sciences

The CIMSS Student Workshop on Atmospheric, Satellite, and Earth Sciences features an exciting five-day agenda in meteorology, astronomy, remote sensing and geology. Participating students stay on campus in lakeshore dorms and experience science education, research and technology through hands-on activities, working directly with scientists, graduate students and professors.


The CIMSS Student Workshop has been a valuable legacy in the educational community since 1991. The majority of graduates have gone on to pursue science majors in college and several graduates have since helped with the workshop while attending the UW-Madison. With continued support from NOAA and collaborations between University departments, the workshop will continue to attract students to science careers for years to come.
