SciJinks

SciJinks is all about weather. Short for Science Hijinks, SciJinks is a joint NOAA and NASA educational website that puts fun and adventure into learning about weather, satellite meteorology, and Earth science. The activities are geared toward middle- and high-school aged kids and their educators.

Youth are invited to answer important questions about weather, read timely stories about weather in the news, view profiles of fun weather jobs, play mobile and web games about satellites and technology, and watch exciting weather-related videos. SciJinks has informative articles that answer important questions about weather, timely stories about weather in the news, profiles of fun weather jobs, mobile and web games about satellites and technology, exciting videos, and tons of downloadable content.

There is a cast of character’s getting into their share of SciJinks themselves. You can follow their tales as they get into all sorts of mischief. Check back regularly to see what they are up to!
