The fan represents the wind, the lamp is the sun, and the tub represents the water being warmed by the sun. As a result, the moisture from the warm air rises and helps create low pressure systems that bring rain, sleet, freezing rain, hail, and snow.
This group had students use sprinkles to represent molecules. As the altitude increased (towards top of cupcake) the molecules were further apart thus making it colder and more difficult to take in oxygen.
This student created a fan to create seasonal winds!!
This group showed how prevailing winds can be utilized for energy.
Student lab groups each picked a weather term or phrase to model:
Distance from Water
High and Low Pressure
This group is demonsrating how ocean currents impact weather patterns. They explained how cool ocean currents absorb heat from the equator and bring cooler temperatures to coastal regions.
This group demonstrated how the tilt of the Earth’s axis influences how much heat each region of the world receives as the Earth revolves around the sun.
