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 Texas was held Tuesday, but there’s still time to get in on the second Texas session, which will be held Thursday from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.. There is a limit of 500 participants, but there was still plenty of room as of Tuesday morning.

Signing up is easy. Click or tap here and fill out a quick 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:
