Students and EOL wind tunnel

About 60 second graders from Whittier International School in Boulder visited Foothills Lab on February 3. Among the highlights of their tour was experiencing a 60-mile-per-hour wind produced by EOL's wind tunnel (right). The students also saw demonstrations in the calibration and Raman-shifted Eyesafe Aerosol LIDAR laboratories, dropped in on the machine shop, checked out the TRAnsect Measuring system, and saw a weather balloon launch. "I wanted my son's class to get an inside look at NCAR and be exposed to scientific research tools that it wouldn't normally see," explains EOL's Steve Oncley, who arranged the visit. "The kids and parents who tagged along really enjoyed themselves."
