Hey! The weather is happening outside! Instead of using the computer, TV or radio to find out the weather, build your own instruments for your very own weather station.
This Build Your Own Weather Station guide from NOAA will teach you to build six weather instruments that you can use to take real scientific measurements of your local weather.
Once you’re collecting weather data, take the next step—report it! NOAA’s Be a Citizen Weather Reporter can help you learn to make forecasts from your local observations.
Take photos of your weather station and send it to Owlie – coming soon.
