Project launch at West Preparatory Junior Public School!

Ashley, Felicia, Niall, and Camille visited West Prep. on Tuesday, February 7th and Ashley, Ashley J, Rodica, and Kim visited West Prep. on Wednesday, February 8th to launch the Student-Researchers Atmospheric Collaboration. West Prep. students impressed CANDAC scientists with their understanding of Earth's atmosphere, as well as their keen interest in the ozone layer. Kindergarten and grade 2 students learned how to make temperature measurements using a thermometer, while grade 4-6 students learned how to make wind measurements using an anemometer and windsock. Students will be monitoring the weather in their region and sharing their observations with CANDAC scientists and students at other participating schools via an online project database. We are looking forward to collaborating with West Prep. this year!!

  1. Thank you, Ashley! It was a fun couple of days for the students! We are looking forward to starting our data collection. I'd like one of those jackets for recess duty!
