    Information about the Weather Machine

    Meteorologist Andy Parker will literally bring the weather into your school! The Weather Machine is capable of producing all types of weather elements, from actual tornados & lightning to snowstorms and just about anything in between. The auditorium presentation is upbeat, edge of your seat and filled with energy as the secrets of the atmosphere are unlocked and demonstrated with the assistance of student scientists selected from the audience

    Here's How it Works

    - The school with the most votes at the end of the contest period will win a visit from Andy Parker and The Weather Machine.
    - Results are shown each day on Channel 7 at 5:15am & 6:15am so you can track how your school is doing in the contest.
    - Vote as often as you like and encourage your friends and family to vote as well!

    About The Weather Machine

    The Weather Machine presentation is a great STEM learning experience for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics geared for students in grades K-6. The contest promotes school spirit and can be a great learning tool for students to experience problem-solving, discovery, exploratory learning and actively engaging a situation in order to find its solution. Again this year I'll be demonstrating the “Green Energy” elements of The Weather Machine and how they are all around us. These demonstrations are meant to inspire the scientist and inventor in each student!
