My 10-year-old daughter recently enjoyed a home school field trip to the NOAA Weather Station in Guam. Since we moved to Guam, she has been attending a distance education program through Laurel Springs School. Her Laurel Springs teacher allowed her to substitute part of her science assignment for the week with a written summary of her experiences.
Thanks to the friendly and informative meteorologists at the weather station, she now has a good grasp of what meteorologists do. She got to watch them launch a weather balloon, and she was amazed to discover the massive amount of data that is collected each day from the weather balloons. It was a fantastic field trip!
