Celebrate preparedness during PrepareAthon, a free festival that teaches the community how to be more resilient when disaster strikes! Uncover life-saving information to protect your family during an emergency and learn more about resiliency. Discover the impacts of climate change on human health, the environment and Chesapeake Bay.
Enjoy resiliency-themed climate change activities in the Museum, including NOAA Science on a Sphere® demonstrations, hands-on experiments in Eco Lab and beyond. Build your own solitary bee nest, make your own water filter and check out a bicycle-powered blender that makes delicious smoothies!
How can you be ready when a disaster strikes? Use our Resiliency Checklist to learn about preparedness and to uncover life-saving information.
