The Science center for Teaching, Outreach, and Research on Meteorology (the STORM Project) at the University of Northern Iowa (UNI) is a cooperative program between the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and UNI. The Project seeks to initiate, support, and coordinate education, service, and research activities that relate weather information and conceptual models of the atmosphere to relevant user communities in Iowa and the Midwest. STORM is developing programming in three areas: Curriculum Development, Remote Sensing, and Meteorological Decision Support..
The Middle School Activities in Air Quality collection is a subset of the larger STORM Project OERs, which includes a set of meteorology lab activities developed for middle and high school students. All activities are classified as Open Educational Resources with Creative Commons licenses.
