“trying to understand the atmosphere”
The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) is a federally funded research and development center devoted to service, research and education in the atmospheric and related sciences. NCAR’s mission is to understand the behavior of the atmosphere and related physical, biological and social systems; to support, enhance and extend the capabilities of the university community and the broader scientific community – nationally and internationally; and to foster transfer of knowledge and technology for the betterment of life on Earth. The National Science Foundation is NCAR's primary sponsor, with significant additional support provided by other U.S. government agencies, other national governments and the private sector.
I was hoping that there would be more exhibits and more hands-on experiences. Not as dynamic as modern science museums have become, e.g. The Exploratorium. Seems like the public area is an after-thought which is not surprising for a research facilty. On the plus side, there is no kitsch.
