First Alert 5 At Science Day In Rye

Posted: Updated:

Meteorologist Jessica Van Meter spent the day in Rye talking about lightning and tornadoes for Science Day.

The annual event for the elementary school was held at Rye Mountain Park and allowed the students a day to learn about various fields related to science, including meteorology, in an outdoor setting.

The mainly 2nd and 3rd grade students Jessica talked with learned about how lightning forms, how dangerous it is here in Colorado, how strong tornadoes can be, the difference between severe weather watches and warnings, and how to stay safe in either weather situation during her session. 

Jessica also visits area schools for Storm Safe presentations. For more information or to have First Alert 5 in your classroom, email weather@koaa.com.

For the scientists and artists in your family, download the First Alert 5 Storm Safe coloring book.
