Program Sells Kids on “Indoor Weather”
The Indoor Weather Program is an extension of The Weather Channel’s award-winning Weather Classroom series that builds on the traditional topics such as tornadoes and thunderstorms by making the connections between indoor and outdoor weather. The curriculum is available to schools everywhere and is based on national standards in geography and science.
To build on the lesson plans and activities offered through the program, Carrier and The Weather Channel have established a national scholarship competition, the Indoor Weather Challenge, which will award $25,000 in prizes. The aim is to encourage students to discover new ways to change indoor environments by improving indoor air quality. For more information on the program, visit www.weather.com/education.
