Weather/Climate Research Project Ideas:
|slideshow, informational handout, letter, brochure, blog, website, field guide, newscast, play (on video), sales pitch for your product, drawing/painting, collage, photo essay, video, animation, computer program/app, digital story, scientific instrument, structure, blueprint, timeline, business plan, your choice. Example: Team 4 demonstrates how a house can be efficiently insulated in two different climate locations (Florida and Colorado). Their presentation includes a house model with a real estate brochure and website with graphs to show how a home uses energy in Florida vs Colorado. They dress as real estate agents to try to get their houses sold in both climate locations.Example: Team 6 demonstrates how snow can have different amounts of humidity based on current weather and the climate in which it is found. They demonstrate the ski rates of two locations in North America, while discussing the average temperature, humidity, pressure, etc. They are dressed as ski enthusiasts who want “fresh powder”!|
