(ABC 6 News) - It’s another weather lab Wednesday. This month our weather team paid a visit to Gibbs Elementary School in Rochester... bringing with them the ABC 6 Weather Lab. Chris, Cindy, and Jim had a blast helping get these extremely eager kids involved with science. News photojournalist Brian Wise has our story.

"It's really important that kids have lots of opportunities with science so many careers that are open to them in their future that have something to do with science and it is a very engaging subject,” said Gibbs 3rd Grade Teacher Kristy Flanaghan. “If we can try and integrate some of the other subjects it makes it more relevant for them in at an age which in terms they are going to learn a lot more."

"That wind can be a hundred miles per hour and stay away from windows," said 3rd Grader Timmy Mai.

"The kids loved it. They did a whole bunch of experiments and the concepts behind it and in really fun and engaging way and super enthusiastic so it really got to the kids and they really understood all the people are trying to teach them," said Kristy.

"Because the wind was really powerful because I had a chance to feel it," said Timmy.

"If we can try and integrate some of the other subjects it makes it more relevant for them in age, in terms they are going to learn a lot more," said Kristy.
