About Us


SciJinks is all about weather! Launched in 2002, we are a NOAA educational website that puts fun and adventure into learning about weather, satellite meteorology and Earth science. We are geared toward middle- and high-school aged kids and their educators.

We’ve got informative articles that answer important questions about weather, profiles of fun weather jobs, mobile and web games about satellites and technology, exciting videos and tons of downloadable content.


This site is produced by the NASA Space Place team at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory for NOAA National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS), with funds from the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite – R Series program and the Joint Polar Satellite System program.
