The summer camp students at Pioneer Technology Arts Academy had a visit from First Alert5 Meteorologist Alex O'Brien. The students learned about winter storms, severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, and flash flooding.

The students loved the experiment demonstrating hail with a hairdryer and ping pong balls. They also enjoyed getting their wiggles out with the weather dance.
