NCEI has a unique role in advancing education and understanding by providing authoritative data and information. The true success of NCEI’s mission as an organization depends on teachers and educators using our data in new and exciting ways. We encourage educators to access our datasets or our climate analysis tools for use in lessons. To do so, visit the Data Access or the Climate Information sections of NCEI's website. In addition to using our data to support your work, check out the following list of excellent resources for climate and weather education.
