Parents, if you’re looking for something new, different and interesting for your kids, the National Hurricane Center has put together webinars for fourth, fifth and sixth graders.

During each webinar, students will learn about hurricanes, the hazards that come with them and how to tell people about the storms.

And while it is geared toward the three grade levels, others can join in, too.

The first session for Florida will be held April 21, with the second to follow on April 23, both of which will run from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Registration opened Monday morning, so be sure to grab your spot.

Signing up is easy. Click or tap here to find and fill out a quick Florida form. After you submit the registration, the webinar organizer will use it to communicate with you.

Do you have out-of-state friends or family who would be interested in the session? There are more webinars coming to other states that are affected by hurricanes, including:
