Greetings DMV AWG Members & Friends!
Thank you to all of our volunteers for the October Field Trips! The budding geoscientists from 4 to 9 years old loved being able to ask questions to professional experienced geoscientists! Attached is a clip from the NOAA Field Trip where the young aspiring geoscientists assisted in launching a weather balloon (we don’t currently have permission to post this on social media and we ask that you also refrain from sharing this on any social media platform)! After the launch we got to see the real-time data collection plotting on the computer screens inside the station, which demonstrated pressure changes in the atmosphere, an idea that was discussed earlier in the field trip and demonstrated through simple experiments.
WHAT: DMV AWG Social Hour and an opportunity to help shape future events for our chapter
WHERE: Wunder Garten located at 1101 1st Street NE (one block away from the NOMA Gallaudet U Metro stop on the Red Line)
WHEN: This Thursday, NOV 15th from 6-8pm
WHO: You and any geoscientist in the DMV area that would like to participate
We hope to see you Thursday!
