The Weather Machine is Going Green!
This is a great STEM learning experience for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. The Weather Machine is a great learning tool for students to experience problem-solving, discovery, exploratory learning and actively engage a situation in order to find its solution. Again this year I'll be demonstrating the "Green Energy" elements of The Weather Machine and how they are all around us. These demonstrations are meant to inspire the scientist and inventor in all of us!
Plus, we will continue the popular "2nd Chance Draw" and you can even earn Extra Credit for sharing your weather projects with us on Daybreak... Plus we may show them on TV! Click on the Extra Credit icon below to learn more.
I would love to bring The Weather Machine to your school! So tell your family & friends to watch Daybreak each morning and use the Weather Machine Word of the Day to vote for your school!
