Workshop helps teachers master meteorology

Become a meteorologist for a day and learn how to turn your classroom into a weather station. Expand your knowledge and understanding of how the weather really works and recognize the importance of weather observations in forecasting in this workshop presented by meteorologist Heather Dock from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 6, at PPL’s Susquehanna Riverlands.

Hands-on activities will accompany instruction as we reveal the mysteries of the ever-changing atmosphere. Educators will receive a collection of activities and resources aligned to state academic standards to use with their classroom for all grade levels.

Dock is a graduate of Penn State University with a bachelor’s degree in meteorology and teaching certification in environmental education. She is also a part-time broadcast meteorologist at WYLN-TV in Hazleton, Pa.

Pennsylvania Act 48 continuing education credits are available to teachers attending this free workshop. Lunch will be provided. Registration is required. For more information, please contact PPL at pplpreserves@pplweb.com or call 1-866-832-3312.
