GINGER Zee has shared an exciting update on a project away from television.
The Good Morning America star shared an Instagram post detailing her professional news earlier this week.
In the photos, Ginger stood alongside other panel members at the National Children’s Museum.
The 42-year-old meteorologist wore a bright and colorful outfit consisting of tight, cropped pants, a white tee, and a bold pink blazer.
She had her new bangs down and swept to the side, and smiled happily as she posed with her arms around her new colleagues.
The daytime TV star captioned the post: “Exciting announcement: I have joined the board of the @nationalchildrensmuseum and was so happy to kick it off as part of their climate change panel with Kim Noble of @epagov , Arthur Afflek @assocofchildrensmuseums & @crystalbowyer.”
She added the hashtags: “#stem #steam #children #education,” suggesting that she’d be using her impressive meteorology skills as part of her work at the museum.
Crystal Bowyer, who was tagged as part of the climate change panel, quickly commented: “We are grateful for your support! I continue to be inspired by your dedication to sparking the generation of innovators.
“Excited to *officially* welcome you to the @nationalchildrensmuseum Dream Team.”
Ginger’s work in encouraging children into STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) came after the revelation that she has a new children’s book in the works.

She has two children of her own – Adrian, seven, and Miles, five – with her husband Ben Aaron.
Late last month, one of the TV personality’s fans took to Twitter with a question from her young daughter for the chief meteorologist.
They wrote: “@Ginger_Zee my 10-year-old wants to know if you’ll be writing a 4th Chasing Helicity book?”
Ginger promptly wrote back: “I would love to write a prequel! Or a 4th…” and linked to her website.
According to the official synopsis, Ginger’s Chasing Helicity series is a trilogy “targeted for 8-12 year olds but perfect for anyone who likes adventure and science.”
There are currently three books in the series: Force of Nature, Into the Wind, and Through the Storm.
Alongside her children’s range, Ginger has written two other books, called Natural Disaster: I Cover Them, I Am One, and A Little Closer to Home: How I Found the Calm After the Storm.
AFTER THE STORM
Ginger’s book Natural Disaster: I Cover Them, I am One gives an insight into her battle with depression.
The TV personality has been open about her mental health issues in the past.
She was diagnosed with depression at 21.
On May 5, Ginger spoke to People about the benefits running has had on her life after she attended the first Open Run for an Open Mind event, which took place on May 2 in Queens, New York.
Explaining her participation in the race, she said: “In my darkest times personally, as my career was ramping up and everything was going, running was the therapy I didn’t realize I had.
“A lot of times it broke isolation or it gave me the natural dopamine hit or whatever it was that I didn’t realize I needed more than anything.”
Ginger concluded: “I wasn’t in a place — because I didn’t have the proper diagnosis until about 11 years ago — to really heal, but I believe that running kept me above rock bottom many times.”
