Offered at Erie High School
Grades 9, 10, 11, 12
Students develop an understanding of the earth’s atmosphere and the factors that affect weather and climate in this semester-long meteorology course. They use laboratory and technology skills to analyze weather models and make evidence-based forecasts, and they explore extreme weather events that impact human safety and alter environmental conditions. Students also study the current rate of climate change and develop awareness of the human impacts that have the potential to create lasting global transformation and learn how precipitation creates our weather and how to forecast the weather on a daily basis.
