HRD scientists Eric Uhlhorn and Lisa Bucci participated in the 9th annual CBS4 Weather Day Thursday before the Miami Marlins vs. Philadelphia Phillies game at Marlins Park. Local elementary- and middle-school students participated in the fun-filled, science-focused field trip. The program is designed to teach the kids basic concepts of weather and climate and how these topics relate to living in South Florida. Topics covered included thunderstorms, lightning, tornadoes and hurricanes. In addition, meteorology, math, science, computer science and geography were all discussed.
Weather Day is a collaborative effort of CBS4, the Miami Marlins, NOAA, and Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach County public schools.
