Schools Weather Wall

Encourage your students to dive into the world of meteorology with this fun and interactive education initiative. Scitech is partnering with GWN7 to give WA schools the chance to feature on their local weather report for a whole term.

Teaching the importance of weather forecasting helps to enhance students’ Science as a Human Endeavour studies, and gives them the opportunity to develop their Science Inquiry Skills. As part of our Schools Weather Wall initiative, you’ll team up with other regional and remote schools across Western Australia to submit important weather data to Scitech.

Each school is given four items of weather-measuring equipment (which you get to keep). Over the term your students will monitor local minimum and maximum temperatures, rainfall, wind direction and cloud information. Then we send the information to the GWN7 television network.

Your students won’t need too much encouragement to watch the local nightly weather report. And they’ll get bragging rights when your school’s name, and the data they worked so hard to collect, is featured.

Cost: Free
Open to regional and remote schools only
