Product Details

Can you predict the weather? Use this all-inclusive weather activity kit to show your students the simple tools and techniques that are used to measure atmospheric conditions and predict weather. Students record precipitation data, see how a sling psychrometer measures relative humidity and dew point, take wind measurements, and create their own barometer. A great starter kit to learn the basics of meteorology!

Kit contains enough student materials for 30 students working in pairs.
