On January 29 students in our Earth Explorers STEM Block gathered to premiere the short films that they created in collaboration with University of Colorado and NCAR scientists.  The students presented to the audience about their experiences and what they had learned. Then each film was shown. As a part of this process students went to CU and NCAR to learn from and collaborate with their university professors. They had wonderful experiences on the CU campus.
