High school students from around the country are discovering the science and careers related to weather and climate at this year's Weather Camp running June 9-14 at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
Students find out how scientists observe and forecast the weather and monitor the changing climate through various activities: conducting experiments with instruments while learning about weather science, visiting with scientists and forecasters, and learning about the tools and careers of the trade.
