Science class learns about weather from Pros

Submitted Article
Eighth grade science students from Big Lake Middle School traveled to Target Field to learn about the science behind weather from KARE 11’s meteorologists this month. 
The weather pros covered topics like forecasting, temperature, pressure systems, wind and more during a 45-minute presentation to hundreds of Minnesota students. The presentation was part of KARE 11’s Weather Day at Target Field, which the TV news station holds annually. 
Big Lake student, Shelby Chapman, was chosen from the audience to participant in a weather trivia contest. 
“She proved her weather knowledge by winning the contest,” said science teacher, Jim VanderHeyden. “It earned her a Twins jersey and some KARE 11 merchandise.”
As part of Weather Day, the science students were able to stay at Target Field to cheer on the Twins as they defeated the Red Sox.
