YS Weather Workshop


YS Weather Workshop

Eligibility: Class IV to VIII
Designed and brought to you by

We live under constant pressure...not social pressure or financial pressere, but atmospheric pressure!
We use pressure cookers every day.
We travel in pressurized cabins of aircraft. Vehicles use pressurized air to inflate tires, work suspension systems etc.

Pressure and temperature differences are the fundamental factors determining climate and weather.
What are climate and weather?
How do we make weather forecasts?
How do cyclones and tornadoes form?

Come and find answers to your questions!

This workshop will be an exploration of atmospheric sciences and applied physics. We'll demonstrate cloud formation and build simple barometers. There will be a combination of theory and experiment to simplify the concepts from meteorology.

Key Concepts:

Pressure gradient
temperature gradient
Cloud formation
Formation of Cyclones
High and Low depressions

Tentative Experiments:

Cloud in a bottle
Tornado in a bottle
Build a barometer

Objective: Explore atmospheric science with experimentation and build a simple barometer.
