Beyond Science

Science engagement and communication through the arts & culture

NCAR, or the National Center for Atmospheric Research, is a world leading organization dedicated to the study of the atmosphere, the Earth system, and the Sun. One of the NCAR education and outreach goals is to inspire, engage, and inform the nation about the atmospheric and related sciences conducted by NCAR and the university community. By sharing the beauty of nature that scientists study and the people who work in these fields, we aim to inspire everyone to look beyond just the science.

Explore these pages to investigate the wonders of nature and creative scientific projects taking place across the institution and in collaboration with the university community. Check back periodically to discover new topics, stories, and multimedia content.
