(ABC 6 News) - We want to spark interest in STEM-based learning. The ABC 6 Weather Lab is our initiative to get kids involved and excited not only about weather, but science too. Every month, the ABC 6 Weather team brings the Weather Lab to a new school, for a day of fun and learning. Our latest visit brought us to Kingsland Elementary in Adams, Minnesota. And those Knights came ready to explore and learn with us.
Nats: "Give it up for the ABC 6 Weather Lab…"
"So, we got to experience the Weather Lab today, which my kids have been so excited about," said Kingsland 2nd grade teacher Megan Streiff.
"The Weather Lab, which is awesome…" said Kingsland 4th grade teacher Erin Milz.
Nats: "Raise your hand for a power pole."
"Just watching the different experiments…"
"…and the enjoyment that the kids have gotten out of it…."
Nats: "Whoa, look at that go."
"It's about an hour long, but they're super interested. They're up and moving," said Milz.
Nats: "3, 2, 1… ohhhhh."
"And I think because you so many different things and you show them the little videos that they're intrigued," she said.
"They really got to see how a cloud works or how air comes out of the…" explained Streiff.
"And so we got to learn about different types of thunderstorms…"
"…and about molecules and air pressure…"
Nats: (using air guns)
"The air movement one, where we popped the little things and the puffs of air was going through the air, that was really awesome," said Milz.
Nats: "Whoa! You want to see it fast?! Whoa!"
"It's been a lot of fun and I'm really looking forward to getting them back to class and seeing what they have to say," she said.
