Teach the Teacher Status Page
Updated January 16, 2007
Email firstname.lastname@example.org whenever the status of your project changes and he will update this web page. Each training session should be between 5-15 minutes. Feel free to pair up with a friend. We would like to create 10 training sessions for the teachers and club members to visit during the meeting.
Invitation Flier for Teachers

Dr. Jennifer Collins
Jennifer will host the event and will work on the logistics and last minute problems during setup.
Dave Anderson and Paul Toth – WeatherNet Demonstration
A live weather station will be setup to demonstrate how home weather station data can be transmitted to the internet via amateur radio. This session will help elevate awareness of weather data resources available at both the internet and over-the-air access.
Thomas Walsh – Hurricane Forecast Uncertainty Cone
Teachers will manually plot the latitude, longitude, strength, and the average forecast error for the 5-day Hurricane Charley forecast. Teachers will be able to download the Power Point slides and student worksheet from the AMS website.
– need a computer and projector
– need desks for teachers to work the exercise
Dick Fletcher – Condensation
Water vapor in the atmosphere can be condensed into visible water droplets by cooling the air and by lowering the pressure. Teachers will be do two simple experiments to show these processes.
Team USF – Pressure by Haili Vinson, Jessica Lauther, & Richard Goode
Teachers will view two experiments. We will demonstrate the ideas of
pressure, pressure gradient force, and temperature influences through the
“egg sucking” experiment, in which we will use pressure differences to
pull an egg into a bottle.
Team USF – Convection by Haili Vinson, Jessica Lauther, & Richard Goode
This experiment will allow teachers to watch the development of a thunderstorm as created by warm and cold water.
Nancy Knight – Create a Portable Cloud
Heat colored water in a jar, then decrease the pressure to form a cloud.
Daniel Noah – Hurricane Strike
– Each session will take 10 minutes
– Each teacher will receive an interactive CD-ROM
– I’ll bring the laptop and projector
– Need white wall and electricity
