A Stormy Session

Fifth-graders at Kramer Lane participated in a national webinar on hurricane preparedness. Hosted by the University of Rhode Island and the Inner Space Center, more than 10,000 students in more than 500 classes nationwide participated in the presentation. Experts from the National Hurricane Center educated students on hurricane history, how and where hurricanes typically form, how they can be predicted and how to prepare. The webinar offered a unique, in-the-field perspective on the storms.
