NY Weather Station Created to Stimulate Student Interest in Science
NWS's newest weather sensors are part of a new "Environmental Discovery Center" dedicated in Hunts Point, NY, December 6, 2002. The new weather station at Hunts Point, NY, (also known as "The Point" in Bronx, NY) was created through a public/private partnership with the Hunts Point community and educators from the Bronx Community College.
"This dedication ceremony represents what might be called a dream come true - that is to link education, weather observations, and improved weather forecasts for the Bronx," noted NWS Director Jack Kelly. "We are here to dedicate the achievement of installing this new equipment and the potential for success in educating the young people of Hunts Point about the wonders of science."
NWS's Mike Wyllie, Meteorologist-In-Charge of the Upton, NY, Weather Forecast Office (WFO) worked closely with the Hunts Point community to bring this plan to life. The Point is a non-profit organization dedicated to youth development and the cultural and economic revitalization of the Hunts Point section of the South Bronx. The Point's mission is to stimulate culture and enterprise through self-investment by its residents, especially its youth.
"The Hunts Point Weather Station, with its new Environmental Discovery Center, will be an excellent educational tool for the residents of the South Bronx, providing all students an opportunity to become interested in meteorology and environmental science," said Wyllie.
The new Environmental Discovery Center will provide more than standard weather observations; it will also measure environmental factors that affect the community. The center includes instruments to monitor carbon monoxide and ozone levels allowing for air quality research to be conducted.
WFO Upton will have direct access to the new station, which will fill a gap between observations made at Central Park and LaGuardia Airport.
According to Wyllie, the new center also has a web camera to allow NWS forecasters and teachers in classrooms across the Bronx to see weather that's approaching. In addition, NWS also constructed a new weather computer lab to allow students to access local data to simultaneously work on projects.
"We aren't just installing equipment here, the NWS is working with the Bronx Community College, local high schools, and other members of the community to help students in the Bronx learn about science and weather," Kelly said.
Guests attending the ceremony included Congressman Jose Serrano and Vice Adm. Conrad C. Lautenbacher, Jr., U.S. Navy (Ret.), Undersecretary of Commerce for Oceans and Atmosphere and NOAA Administrator, Nick Stefano, Sussex County Weather Network.
