Storm Chasing

The DENSI2012 Summer Institute opened with Reed Timmer (@reedtimmerTVN) of Storm Chasers fame.  Be sure to look through his website as he has set up so you and your students are able to track storms live or view the live video weather cams.

If you look up exuberant in a thesaurus, all the adjectives describe Reed and his passion for meteorology.  He is such a good sport, shown at the right posing with Kathy Schrock before his presentation.

In his presentation, titled The Science of Extreme Storm Chasing, we got a glimpse of the excitement and seriousness of his work.  His true passion is what inspires me most.  While working with teachers and students, being able to find ways to light a fire of passion about a subject is the ultimate goal.  Children love to wonder, this naturally connects to the STEM subjects.  Give them access to inspired people and their research and chances to experiment to find their own passion.

 

 

 

 

Thank you for inspiring me and others!

What will you chase?!?!
