Grades K-5

Air pressure, cloud formation and the science of thunderstorms are investigated in this interactive lab.  Students will examine the atmospheric conditions that combine to create our ever-changing Panhandle weather and learn important thunderstorm safety rules.

Grades K-2 are introduced to air pressure, cloud formation and the science of lightning as students discover how these elements come together to create a thunderstorm.

Grades 3-5 take an in-depth look at the atmospheric elements which must be present for thunderstorms and lightning to form and explore the science of thunderstorm formation.
