Outreach Oppurtunities

Outreach is a very important aspect to our organization. Below we have listed some of the many programs which we participate in every year. If you have any questions or want to know more information about any of these programs, please do not hesitate to contact our Outreach Coordinator Joey Patton.
OU Big Event

Every spring, over 5,000 students, faculty, and staff go out across the Norman and Greater Oklahoma City metro area for one day of service. For the past thirteen years, students have participated in this event to show their appreciation to the surrounding community by completing service projects such as painting, yard work, and visiting with the elderly. This event is a completely student-run service project, allowing us to do our part for the community.

This year, we had over 20 members help clean up trash, clean windows, mow grass and weed the gardens of Orvis Risner Elementary School in Edmond, OK.

Big Event 2013
Relay for Life

Relay for Life At Relay For Life events, communities across the globe come together to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has already taken too much. The funds you raise truly make a difference in the fight against cancer – just ask one of the nearly 14 million cancer survivors who will celebrate another birthday this year!

Relay teams camp out overnight and take turns walking or running around a track or path at a local high school, park, or fairground. Relay events are up to 24 hours in length and, because cancer never sleeps, each team is asked to have at least one participant on the track at all times.

This year over 25 OUSCAMS members raised $505 for the fight against cancer.
S.T.O.R.M.
S.T.O.R.M.
The S.T.O.R.M. program is comprised of undergraduate and graduate students in meteorology from the University of Oklahoma whose goal is to serve the local community by relaying valuable weather information to public school students. Our primary hope is that the students we reach will become knowledgeable of severe weather safety precautions and will stir up awareness of these precautions within their own households. In doing so, we believe that the community will be better prepared for life-threatening events such as tornadoes, lightning, and floods. Our secondary purpose is to provide a basic education of meteorology in order that curiosity in the sciences might be fostered in the students who hear our presentation. Ultimately, we hope our talks will persuade students to become fascinated with nature, and will inspire some of them to consider a career in one of the sciences. For more information please visit our S.T.O.R.M. website.
