Storm Team 8 Weather Experience: March 21, 2019

Weather Experience

LANSING, Mich. (WOOD) — WOOD TV8 hosted nearly 120 third-graders from school across West Michigan for the Weather Experience on Thursday.

In the afternoon, students from East Kelloggsville joined Storm Team 8 Meteorologist Ellen Bacca in the Media Arts Center in downtown Grand Rapids to learn all about West Michigan weather. The students from Mr. Hughes and Ms. Soyka’s classes learned how to track a storm. The students loved Ellen’s hands-on demos.

In the morning, students from Grand View Elementary School and Coit Creative Arts Academy got ready for severe weather season by learning about tornados and thunderstorms. They even had a chance to try their skills in front of the green screen.
