More about NOAA Live!

The NOAA Live! Webinars are a collaboration between NOAA's Regional Collaboration Network and Woods Hole Sea Grant at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.  

Each interactive webinar features a different NOAA expert/topic and a moderated question and answers session throughout so that kids can get a peek at what our NOAA scientists do in all the various NOAA offices.  These webinars are geared toward grades 2-8.  Webinars are streamed via GoToWebinar, are ~45 minutes in length, have live American Sign Language interpretation, and are recorded and put on our WHOI YouTube Channel with English and Spanish subtitles.  #NOAALive4Kids
