Incorporate weather into STEM curriculum for grades K-12, reinforcing math, science and vocabulary lessons while giving the whole community a valuable asset.
DISCOVER THE ADVANTAGES
Engage the community
Develop a sense of school community by posting your weather data online. Students and parents can use real-time weather information to decide how to dress for school and after-school activities.

Expand your curriculum
Incorporate weather into your science program with an on-campus garden. Students can document weather conditions and their relationship to plant growth using graphs and written assignments.
Base your research on accurate data. Davis weather stations are used in academic research projects by hundreds of universities throughout the world where accurate, reproducible data on temperature, wind or rain is required.
