Reviews for Weather Research Center, Inc.

Rating: 5 stars  

The meteorologists at the Weather Research Center are best meteorologists in the industry! The WRC meteorologists are the most positive too as they educate Houston on our exciting Gulf Coast Weather on Positively Houston News! We feel very fortunate to be affiliated with this very knowledgeable and professional team.

I work with the WRC meteorologists on our new, positive local news program aired on HoustonPBS from the University of St. Thomas.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Nothing. This is an excellent team and I hope to have the opportunity to work with this particular team for a very long time.

The Weather Research Center was a huge inspiration for our Son, age 10 to pursue a career as a meteorologist. He attended weather camp this past summer. He really enjoyed it and learned many things about hurricanes and tornados. He was sent home with papers, experiments the class did, and mementos to keep. This program is both fun and educational and set children in a positive road in life. Since the weather camp he joined the school announcement team and Science Olympia. For our family winter vacation we are schedule to visit New Orleans and take the “Katrina tour” and afterward visit Galveston to visit the 1900 storm museum. I’m proud of him!! Thank you WRC!! I would highly recommend the Weather Research Center...we will attend the summer of 2011 as well! And participate in any additional program WRC offers.

This is an incredible organization and I’m proud to say it’s in Houston. Weather Research Center is an unknown gem it certainly inspired my Son in scientists and made him conscience of weather safety. Instead of watching your common 10 year old shows on television he watches the weather reports and news channels pertaining to weather. His role models are meteorologist.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

This museum truly inspires our youth to want to know more.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Great Staff..The WRC gave their undivided attention to my son and patiently answering all questions.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Expanded and market to all schools...

I am always thirsting for knowledge, so I love to visit museums, especially new and interesting ones. Originally there to do research for my website, I was very pleasantly surprised with my experience. The amount of information they provided in addition to the hands-on exhibits kept me at the museum for a couple of hours and also interacting with other visitors that day (a group from out of town, incidentally). One of my favorite exhibits was the Hurricane Ike information. I was abroad for a month during the time of the disaster and had only scattered reports from other travelers and news when I could get it on my hotel television to know what was happening back home. The Weather Museum exhibit gave me a thorough idea of what happened so I could better appreciate what my family and friends had to unfortunately go through. I plan to visit again and will bring my nieces and nephews to learn and enjoy!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my new perspective on weather and how powerful the elements can be. I love history, too, so seeing the past through our regions weather conditions was an interesting perspective.
