10th Annual Science Expeditions Visits AOSS
SSEC and AOSS welcomes Science Expeditions
Enthusiastic learners of all ages flooded the UW-Madison campus on Saturday, 14 April 2012, for the 10th Annual Science Expeditions event.
An estimated 250 explorers made their way to the AOSS Building where they were guided through several displays, demonstrations, and spectacular views of satellite dishes and the Madison campus from the roof.
On hand to give the explorers a good look at the work done in the AOSS Building were:
Sam Batzli presented the impressive images of WisconsinView.
Tom Whittaker introduced young explorers to his collection of weather applets.
George Weidner gave demonstrations of the Antarctic Automatic
Weather Station Program with David Mikolajczyk and Nick Weber.
As presented by Rick Kohrs and Patrick Rowley,
the 3D Science on a Sphere captivated crowds.
Margaret Mooney and Patrick Rowley (center in top image) and Britta Gjermo (center above), along with Mark Hobson and Tom Whittaker, answered questions on the roof.
