Educators Leveraging the
Tempest Schools Program

Lexington City Schools

Schools Case Study 1

The innovative minds at Lexington City School District pioneered a cutting-edge network of Tempest Weather Systems, seamlessly integrating the data into their students' Classlink pages and district websites. Through this initiative, science and math educators harness real-time data to inspire STEAM learning experiences that transcend the classroom. Their forward-thinking approach extends to practical applications, as evidenced by leveraging lightning data to substantiate insurance claims following a severe storm.

NOAA Grant Applied for Tempest Network

Schools Case Study 2

Using a Climate Literacy Grant from NOAA, Einstein Fellow Sheryl Sotelo spearheaded a program that helps early teachers in rural Alaska get weather stations into their schools. Particularly in Alaska, weather dictates residents’ ability to travel to small villages and determines whether they get mail, groceries, and necessary supplies. “With a Tempest, kids can look at what’s happening around them and bring in traditional ecological knowledge from what their elders have seen changing throughout their lifetime.”

Why Tempest?
