Grades 6-8 | Mount Washington Observatory presents The Science of Wind – Apr 18, 2019 12:10pm EST

Strategically located at the convergence of three major storm tracks, the summit of Mount Washington is battered year-round by some of the highest winds observed by mankind. In this program we’ll learn where wind comes from and how weather observers at the historic Mount Washington Observatory measure this invisible force. As a bonus, we’ll watch the observers work and play in winds over one hundred miles per hour!
