We are working with a number of local schools to help them meet their obligations, in line with the latest curriculum, exposing students to engineering and spatial science. We are setting up a network of weather stations located in selected schools. These weather stations allow school students to undertake spatial analysis of wind, temperature, pressure, and rainfall data from these different locations for things like flood predictions.
Data from the weather stations will be useful for both primary and secondary schools to comply with the latest national curriculum requirements, particularly in key topical areas such as sustainability and the environment, as well as broader fields such as geography, and agricultural science and technology.
