The students participated in a lively conversation about the various types of weather systems, including rain, snow, sleet, tornados and thunderstorms. Joe was also asked some great questions about his career and his favorite part of the job. The class was prepared with index cards and practiced their questions to which Joe was amazed with; including a drawing of him on the white board as a nice welcome gesture.
After the weather talk, students headed outside to see Storm Team 8’s Executive Auto Group Mobile Weather Lab Jeep. The lights and equipment fascinated the students and they enjoyed taking photos with the Jeep and Joe.
