Get hands-on experience studying and observing many aspects of the science of meteorology at the peak of Arizona’s active thunderstorm and monsoon season. You will measure solar radiation and discover the startling impacts of space weather and participate in an activity of “name that cloud."

One of your days will feature atmospheric measurements – you will be introduced to and have an opportunity to take part in how drones are used to measure the atmosphere, launch a weather balloon and learn how to do a sounding plot with that data, and even make your own weather instrument.

We will (weather permitting) leave campus on a field trip to chase northern Arizona’s monsoon thunderstorms, hike an ancient volcano and tour the Flagstaff National Weather Service office, and then have dinner at a popular restaurant in Flagstaff, AZ. You will be in the meteorology lab using interactive graphics along with satellite and radar imagery to understand how the atmosphere works, analyze tornadoes and hurricanes, and interpret weather maps and computer models. Ultimately, by the end of this program, you will understand and be able to make your own forecast like a pro.

Registration for Summer 2019 will open on Monday, December 3, 2018.  In the meantime if you would like more information or to be put on our email list, please email us or complete the form on the right.

Summer Overnight Camps

Live on campus like Embry-Riddle students and explore career possibilities in flight, mechanical engineering, global security, or what it is like to be a NASA astronaut.

Embry-Riddle's overnight summer programs at the Daytona Beach Campus and Prescott Campus introduce the technology of today to the aviators, engineers, and astronauts of tomorrow.

Students live in on-campus dormitories — under the supervision of approved counselors — and share their initial experience of University living with other young people near their age
