Hilary Peddicord and Beth Russell, NOAA’s Earth System Research Laboratories in Boulder, CO

The SOS Explorer™ free mobile app animates the world right on your smartphone. As a pocket-size version of NOAA’s Science On a Sphere®, this free app invites you to zoom in on specific interests, from the squiggly warm and cold lines of the world’s ocean currents to the power of tsunami waves, the effects of climate change, and a view of Saturn’s rings. Learn how to play with an animated globe and some of NOAA’s most fascinating facts. (Grades 2-6 but all ages will enjoy)

**Download the SOS Explorer in advance on your favorite mobile device if you like (just make sure you are watching the webinar on another device!)**
