On May 23rd all Year 7 students went to Bang Na for half a day trip to see how weather data is collected and how it can be used to forecast the weather.
They got to see a Stevenson Screen, rain gauges, anemometers, evaporation pan and a Campbell-Stokes sunshine recorder.
After being told how these instruments worked they went inside for a short lecture about forecasting the weather and the different types of weather Thailand experiences. The students diligently took notes and answered a variety of questions.
Finally everyone went into the Meteorological Discovery Museum for a short history of meteorology.
It was a very informative morning for all the students.
