Destination STEM: This year, our STEM Destination is meteorology – the study of weather. A weather anomaly has occurred and our young scientists will need to learn about the different types of weather and design shelters and tools to protect the citizens from the inclement weather. We ‘predict’ our scientists will be able to help our citizens ‘weather the storms’.

Our students will become young meteorologists as they explore different weather phenomena and learn how science, technology, engineering, and math all contribute to the study of weather. As a culminating activity, our young scientists will visit the weather station at WSAV to meet and learn from REAL meteorologists! Students will learn h to effectively use Foss Kits and Everyday Math manipulatives.
