OU SCAMS students participate in many varied programs in which they serve their college, their university, and their community.
Many OU SCAMS members volunteer at the annual National Weather Festival, as well as the University of Oklahoma
campus-wide community service project, the Big Event. Upperclassmen also participate in a School of Meteorology mentoring program for the freshmen members,
and students at all academic levels may serve as NWC Volunteer Outreach Specialists (aka tour guides).
The chapter has also donated food to an Oklahoma City food pantry, and at the beginning of the 2007-2008 school year, OU SCAMS organized a National Weather Center-wide Red Cross fundraiser for the Greensburg, KS tornado disaster.
Recently, OU SCAMS inaugurated a severe weather safety outreach program geared towards local elementary schools. Chapter members visited several schools and gave an introduction to severe weather and the field of meteorology in a comprehensive, hands-on way to all ages, from preschool to fifth grade.
2010-2011 was a record setting year for OU SCAMS, and included quite a few outreach events. Our members visited many elementary schools, and gave two full day presentations at Frontier City Amusement Park's "Outdoor Classroom." At the end of the year, our members organized a Mr. Meteorology Pageant at the National Weather Center, from which proceeds benefited the Red Cross' efforts in Tushka, OK.
