"Mädchen machen Technik": summer program for school girls (5-6th Sep. 2017)

W2W offered a two-day program for ten school girls between 12 and 14 years old at the meteorological institute in Munich.


The participants discovered the diversity and the complexity of atmospheric phenomena. They made their own experiments to learn about temperature, pressure, clouds, convection, etc. They took part in lab experiments and learned about the foehn winds, the Coriolis force and convection in the atmosphere. They also visited the roof instruments and made their own weather prediction, by hand and numericaly, comparing their results to satellite animations and to computer outputs.
