Mark your Calendars for Monday, June 24 at 10:30 am. It's the second program of our Summer Reading Program featuring MSgt Tom Williamson, USAF WI CRTC (US) and the weather predicting machine used by the Air Force.
We are going to set up the TMQ-53 Tactical Weather Sensor. The purpose is to show that an aspect of field science, in this case being able to set up a remote data collection site. The TMQ-53 is an airport level weather sensor that is capable of sensing basic weather data (Temperature, Barometer and rainfall amount) and enhanced weather data (Cloud Heights, present weather and lightening).
During the demonstration I will be building the sensor as the students ask and answer questions about the parts.
