Weather station

Post by rigsby » Fri, 21st Apr 2017, 7:47am

Hi people
Can any of you remember the weather stations most schools used to have in the 60s and 70s if so what ever happened to them. I can recall them looking like a white box on legs with vents. Do any of you still have them in your school.

A Stevenson screen. Remember having to go outside on very cold mornings when at uni to take the wet and dry bulb readings.

It falls into maths, science, geography.... Alas however no place in our curriculum for this now. In fact all they seem to do now is Sats revision, but don't get me started.
