Meteorology and Space Weather

Meteorology is an important science that studies a wide variety of topics. Anything from atmospheric pressure to currents of the ocean can be analyzed with this topic in mind. Because of this, there are numerous projects that can be offered in this class. Participants of this course will learn the different areas of meteorology and how to incorporate them into their classroom. The focus of the course will be using hands-on lessons to study the meteorological environment of the area the course is being located in. Participants will learn about Doppler Radar, pressure currents and vectors, cloud types and what they mean, and also touch on the future of predicting weather.
