Meteorology is an engaging module that combines academics with concrete, hands-on activities. Students use DEPCO’s exclusive Microclimate Chamber, which simulates atmospheric conditions, in order to explore, manipulate, and gather information in a controlled environment. Students change the temperature and pressure to vary the relative humidity as they gain an understanding of how one weather condition effects the other. In addition, students download, log, and interpret weather updates on local temperature, humidity, wind speed, and rainfall from a weather station located outdoors.
