Fox 2 Meteorologist Unveils Weather Station at Concord Elementary
Glenn Zimmerman visited the Lindbergh elementary school on Oct. 3.
Special guest Fox 2 meteorologist Glenn Zimmerman helped unveil a new weather station at Concord Elementary School Oct. 3, which students will use for buddy activities throughout the year.
During the presentation, Zimmerman, who graduated from Lindbergh High school in 1982, shared with students how he became a meteorologist and explained how to use the new weather station. He also answered several weather-related questions.
The Concord Weather Station was funded by a $300 Lindbergh Schools Foundation teacher grant and built by the PEGS (Program for Exceptionally Gifted Students) students at Concord Elementary School in May 2012. All Concord students will be able to use it as a part of the science curriculum. The weather station also will be used for "buddy" activities between grade levels, encouraging multi-age observations and learning.
The Spirit of Lindbergh Fund exists to support grants to teachers in Lindbergh Schools who propose innovative and engaging projects to boost classroom instruction to the next level. For more information about the Lindbergh Schools Foundation, please visit www.lindberghfoundationstl.org.
