One of the fun events at the Annual Meeting of the American Meteorological Society is what is called a "Weatherfest" It's a great collection and show of weather experiments, hands on demonstrations open to everyone in the host city as this year in Austin, Texas.
Doppler on Wheels used to study tornadoes (sorry about the poor focus)
- Many area schools came and plenty of fun exhibits for students
- Learn about lightning and earth sciences
Science can be fun with terrific teachers who also travel on ocean research ships.
Next year the AMS Annual Meeting will be in Atlanta in early February. If you happen to be there come by the Weatherfest 2014. I might see you there : >)
