Home School at the Museum: Red Sky at Night, Sailor’s delight, Red Sky at Morn, Sailors be warned!

February 20, 2013 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Ever wonder where that saying came from? This month, students will look at the different types of weather systems found over the ocean and how Sailors predict the weather (from early methods, such as the color of the sky, to modern technology). They will build their own barometers to test changing air pressure, and build their own take
home tornadoes.

Please bring two 2-liter soda bottles and one clear, glass bottle (ie: Snapple, juice, soda) per student.
