July and August 2017 Weather Camps!

Weather camp #3 starts next week and I’m looking forward to the chance to share about weather with students! One of my favorite experiments in this hot weather is looking at the temperature of various objects outside with a hand held infrared temperature gauge.  It’s surprising to find out just how hot things can be in July!

My tornado machine will be ready to go and we’ll talk about the real facts behind our storms here in South Dakota.  We’ll also look at how hail forms, study our clouds, and even learn how the types of clouds can give us clues about the weather forecast!

I still have openings for Camp #4 and #5 this month, just email your student’s name and age to karstensclasses@gmail.com to sign up!

Also, I’ll be going to Beresford for a 3-day camp in August.

More information on all the camps below!

Here are a few of the topics we’ll cover.
