OLogy: Make Your Own Weather Station

Create weather tools to gather wind, rain, and pressure data in your neighborhood.

Weather happens in the atmosphere, or the air around us. The conditions in the atmosphere are always changing: it can be hot or cold, wet or dry, moving or still. That’s why we count on meteorologists to tell us what the weather will be like over the next few days.

Meteorologists use special tools to record data about the weather. They study the data to detect patterns. These patterns help them predict the weather.
