The Science of Weather Few things impact our daily life more than weather.  Weather determines the fate of our scheduled baseball games & whether a leisurely hike ends in a downpour.  Predicting the weather is complicated and fascinating! Come & join us as we learn about the science of weather & the basics of weather forecasting. Professor Nanette Marcum- Dietrich returns to lead this popular camp! (Curriculum developed with support for the National Science Foundation – DRL 1640088.)
