Storm Team 8 Weather Experience: May 16, 2019

Weather Experience

The Storm Team 8 Weather Experience made its final stop of the school year at the Media Arts Center in downtown Grand Rapids on Thursday.  In the morning nearly 60 third-graders from Glenwood Elementary in Kentwood came to downtown Grand Rapids to learn about the weather.  Meteorlogist Ellen Bacca had them help her with interactive experiments to learn about electricty, air pressure and snow totals.  The kids loved seeing a real live TV studio and even got the chance to try it themselves.

In the afternoon third-graders from West Kelloggsville Elementary joined Ellen.  Students learned about what to do if a tornado is headed their way and also the best way to stay safe in a thunderstorm!  Before leaving, everyone got to take home a fun good bag!
