Hintgen Elementary hosts Weather Academy


LA CROSSE, WI (WXOW)-- Hintgen Elementary welcomed News 19 to their school, on Thursday, for Weather Academy.

Meteorologists Dan Breeden , Alex Kirchner and Madeline Sky were on hand demonstrating the science of weather.

Students learned all about weather through science experiments like making a cloud in a bottle.

They also got to make their own rain gauges and practice being a TV meteorologist.

But, all of the students took something different away from the academy.

"I learned that high pressure is lighter than low pressure," Ryleigh Inge, 5th grade said.

"What the h and the l means on the weather things," Tyler Schaaf, 5th grade said. "High pressure and low pressure."

"The lightening is hotter than the sun," Ciarra Lietke, 4th grade said.

"The cup thing and the egg is in it and it will just go in because the heat just makes it," Jossie Cowell, 5th grade said.

The next Weather Academy is at St. Mary's Catholic School in Tomah on January 24.
