Weather Merit Badge at NOAA Meteora

With the recent storm that devastated parts of the  East Coast it’s evident predicting weather is important for our modern society. The scouts and cubs visited the NOAA sim to learn about different types of weather and how the National Weather Service predicts weather and monitors for severe conditions. There was a weather map showing all the major weather stations in the USA, a Tsunami Simulator, Climate Change Simulator and a Hurricane Plane Ride. In most of the exhibits we got our “Feet Wet” and learned a lot about weather!
