Our daughter, age 10, our future meteorlogist, attended weather camp this past summer. She really enjoyed it and learned many things about hurricanes and tornados. She was sent home with papers, experiments the class did, and mementos to keep. We live 4 1/2 hours from the Center...so it was a trek for us...we did stay with family in Houston. I would highly recommend the Weather Research Center...we will attend the summer of 2011 as well! I liked the fact there were young women that taught the class that my daughter could "look" up to. Also they have a cool keepsake where your child stands in front of a green screen and tapes their own weather report...way cool!
The WRC provided an excellect program for several youth groups I brought to the museum for a scientific learning experience. This amazing place offered so much more. The opportunity to see how a weatherman preforms on television built confidence as well provided fun. The WRC gave their undivided attention to my youth groups, patiently answering all questions. The students took notes and walked away knowing their experience provided much more knowledge than most schools can provide. This museum truly inspires our youth to want to know more.
