Sixth Grade on a Friday afternoon? Why not! These young ladies and gentlemen gave me their attention for about an hour Friday to chat about weather, water, and a lot of other things meteorologists do. Visiting schools is one of the best parts of my job, and it’s even better when the students are as engaged and bright as this group.
We talked about why definitions of things matter and why looking at the “big picture” is important in making decisions in science.
They asked me some great questions about weather and the path I took to become a meteorologist. I'd imagine there are probably quite a few future scientists - maybe even a meteorologist or two - in this crew!
Thanks to Mr. Williams for inviting me to Blossomwood!
