ABC News’ Ginger Zee to Headline 2018 Nebraska Science Festival

Ginger Zee, chief meteorologist for ABC News, will share her professional – and personal – journey with natural disasters when she headlines the 2018 Nebraska Science Festival (nescifest.comon April 20.

As the face of ABC News’ meteorology team, audiences are familiar with Zee’s coverage of natural disasters, but the December 2017 release of her memoir, “Natural Disaster: I Cover Them, I am One,” also shined a light on the difficult personal path Zee traveled to becoming the first female chief network meteorologist at a network.

Her visit to Omaha will highlight the sixth annual Nebraska Science Festival, scheduled for April 19-28. The festival features an array of science- and technology-related activities in communities across the state with the goal of making science accessible, interactive, relevant and fun for all ages.

Zee’s presentation, to be held at Joslyn Museum’s Witherspoon Concert Hall in Omaha, is suitable for all ages. Tickets for the general admission seating will be released online at Event Brite (four per person) at noon on April 1 on a first-come, first-served basis; please check for more information. Although the April 20 presentation is free to the public, tickets are required for admittance when doors open at 6:30 p.m. The presentation will begin at 7:30 p.m.

You can also sign up on the website to volunteer as an individual, community site or a science expo booth.
