Schools with interactive weather stations and cameras. I started this network (in a previous life) as the "4-WINDS" program of weather stations in schools and using weather and weather stations in schools as a "window into science and math".  Wednesday I had fun at one of our news schools to join the network, St. Thomas Aquinas Regional School in Woodbridge.

ZZZZZ

I not only talked about how I became a meteorologist, but took lots of great questions.

Then a tour of the school that had a "weather theme" competition in the  school hallways.  Everything from sunshine, to wind, storms and a great tornado.

ZZZZZ

.... and a winter theme with a familiar mug dressed for winter.

and a pre-K group of penguins.

Everyone was into weather and as you drive around your neightborhood, if you see something like this on the roof.

It's one of our WeatherBug schools and may be the home of a future meteorologist.  Find out more about the program and how your school can join here.
