First, she met with the Falcon Aerolab students in Woodland Park to teach them about aviation weather.

Then, she spoke with the 3rd graders at Rockrimmon Elementary in Colorado Springs to teach them about severe weather safety.

All of the students today were great listeners and had good questions for Alex.
