Jessica Harris Awarded Grant
Union Power Cooperative has awarded an $890 Bright Ideas grant titled, "Water we looking for?: The Science behind Weather", to fifth grade teacher Jessica Harris.
The funds from this grant will be used to purchase a Wireless Weather Station that will send weather data automatically to a website that can be viewed by both students and community members. Through this project, students will determine how barometric pressure, humidity, wind speed, temperature, and rainfall correlate to predictable patterns of weather by collecting and analyzing weather data from a weather station.
