About the project

WeatherX is working to promote interest and skills in scientific data practices among middle school students in rural areas.

With WeatherX, students use large-scale data to investigate typical and extreme weather in their rural communities and on New Hampshire's Mount Washington, a place that has been called the "Home of the World's Worst Weather."

Our multidisciplinary team is studying WeatherX learning experiences and is making resources available for science classrooms.

Investigations of typical and extreme weather using large-scale data from NOAA and the online data visualization tool, CODAP

Findings on how students make sense of data and how teachers teach with data when investigating weather

Opportunities to learn about science careers through conversations with scientists at Mount Washington Observatory

Links to support learning and teaching about scientific data practices, weather, and climate
