KRQE’s Weather Academy is an educational opportunity for kids to learn about the science of weather. During the 1-hour presentation, kids will learn about the weather taking place outside the walls of the classroom and in their backyard. The KRQE’s Weather Academy will not only teach kids about the weather but also how to stay safe during dangerous weather conditions.

What to expect

(Learning Resources Weather Center Set)

Every week, KRQE Meteorologists will visit an elementary class to educate students about the fascinating world of weather. After the presentation, students will take a short quiz, receive a certificate, and be recognized as official “Graduates of the KRQE Weather Academy.” The teacher will also receive a Learning Resources Weather Center Set for the classroom. That way, students can continue to track and monitor the weather.

Students will also receive a KRQE Weather Academy certificate, coloring sheet and a compass/thermometer keychain that they can hang on their backpacks.

Each class presentation will be posted to the KRQE Weather Academy page.
