Meteorology Day

On Thursday, October 15th, I had what I have dubbed Meteorology Day in my classroom. Students from each of my classes participated in Skype interviews with meteorologists from across the United States and one in Australia. The focus of the conversations was the difficulty of forecasting in the various locations across the country and world. Students were given the opportunity to ask questions of each meteorologist, and the recordings of the conversations are posted below.

My first group talked with Jo Hart from Western Australia. Though she is not a professional meteorologist, she gave us some very interesting insights into the weather factors affecting Western Australia. She also shared with us an album of Flickr photos detailing weather in her region. That album can be viewed here:

The rest of the day we had chats with Les Still from New Bern, NC, Sonja Stevens from Macon, GA, Tom Green of the National Weather Service in Pittsburgh, PA, and Jason Myers from Richmond, VA. The recordings below are also available for download from my PodOmatic page.
