Wind (British Columbia)

Watch out for air currents!

What causes wind? We will answer this question on air density after identifying the gases in our atmosphere in a small weather presentation: “Weather alert! Hot and cold air currents coming from Ottawa and Quebec!” Your meteorologists will then participate in the most exciting wind cannon contest, where each class will accumulate points as in a fun fair: cooperation and healthy competition are on the agenda!  Hang on to your tuques!

Objectives at the elementary level:

  • Describe how weather presenters are able to “predict” the weather.
  • Describe the formation of wind (movement of hot or cold air masses).
  • Illustrate the principle of atmospheric pressure.
  • Describe the impact of wind phenomena on the environment.

Our needs

  • Free space is needed to use wind cannons.
  • 6 teams must be formed before the science animator arrives.

Additional charges

  • Travel costs (minimum $ 25) based on distance apply.
  • In 60-minute workshops, if there are more than 5 groups on schedule, the workshops will be spread over more than one day and the transportation costs will have to be adjusted accordingly.
