The Florida Institute of Technology student chapter
of the American Meteorological Society (FITSCAMS) began in 1997--shortly
after the inception of the meteorology program within the Department
of Marine and Environmental Systems. During it’s five-year history,
the chapter has invited numerous speakers who have given diverse talks
on a variety of meteorological, oceanographic, environmental science,
and space science topics. Our guest speakers have come from within
the faculty and students of the Florida Institute of Technology, from
the National Weather Service office in Melbourne, from Harris Corporation,
from NASA, and from Patrick Air Force Base. Overall, the FITSCAMS
has grown in membership from a handful of students and faculty to
a membership of between fifteen and twenty.
