Blowin' In The Wind

Wind is an important aspect of weather occurrences such as hurricanes, tornadoes, thunderstorms, or weather in general.  Wind speed is measured in many different ways.  Participants will measure their "wind speed" using a Kestrel or wind gauge and compare their results with the Beaufort, Fujita, and Saffir-Simpson Scales.  Participants can create a "hurricane in a bottle."  Directions for these activities will be presented.  A weather sticker will be given to all participants!
