As part of our commitment to support radar meteorology education, the DOWs have been deployed to numerous universities throughout the United States. This has afforded graduate and undergraduate students the opportunity to design and conduct radar experiments and has given them hands-on experience analyzing DOW data. The map below shows every educational deployment attended by DOWs throughout our history. It also includes the locations in 2011 where the DOWs toured for the release of the IMAX film "Tornado Alley", which featured our radars. Throughout the year, the DOWs also participate in many conventions, conferences, field days and outreach events to schools.
