April 2008

The Anchorage National Weather Service helps out with Alaska Science Olympiad, which was held this year on April 12 at Teeland Middle School in Wasilla with students competing from all over the state. Science Olympiad is basically a "Science Olympics" for middle and high school students, with events in all aspects of the sciences. Seen here are Wendler Middle School students competing in the meteorology event, answering questions about a mesonet weather station. Louise Fode and Todd Foisy of Anchorage WFO developed and administered the meteorology event. Along with family and friends, Louise and Todd also developed and administered the oceanography, science word, five star science, and anatomy events.
