Skyline HS Weather station
Looming from the parking lot at Skyline High School stands a WeatherHawk automated weather station which will collect: rain rate and total rainfall, temperature, relative humidity, barometric pressure, as well as wind speed and direction.

The weather station will enable Skyline High School students to compare data collected by the automated station against data collected with hand-held sensors.  In so doing, they will be able to explore a variety of measurement issues such as calibration, precision, accuracy and units of measurement while learning about the atmosphere.
