This week, students in our lunchtime STEM Club set up a weather station. After learning about the sensors for temperature, humidity, wind speed/direction, light intensity and rainfall, they performed a site survey to find the best location: clear of obstructions but still in range of the receiving base station. There was surprising interest in digging a hole and students negotiated for a turn before learning how to safely pour concrete and ensure the mounting pole was plumb. Before long, the observations were being logged and the live data may be viewed here. Next, students will be learning how to write code to access and process these data. Shout out to former student Lennon who is now working for the Bureau of Meteorology!
