Weather conditions changed dramatically and quickly at Nesaquake Middle School when the Franklin Institute’s traveling weather show made a stop in the school’s auditorium.

David Wrigley from the Franklin Institute delivered an interactive presentation on weather to the sixth-graders on March 3. Students learned about the forces behind our weather, how clouds form, different properties that produce certain weather conditions and the water cycle. Using fun facts and interactive experiments, along with a few student volunteers, Wrigley demonstrated how air rises, the power of wind, the condensation process (using liquid nitrogen) and the power of a tornado by demonstrating a fire tornado.
