The third grade kids at Cassens Elementary were able to learn about Gulf Coast weather from Meteorologist Dave Baker using Skype technology. If you didn't know, Cassens Elementary School is in Edwardsville, Illinois almost 800 miles away.
Dave was visiting his niece's classroom talking about severe weather, hurricanes, heat waves, and something Illinois kids are very familiar with this year...snow.
Thanks to video internet conferencing technology, and a LOT of help from teacher Gayle Driscoll and the Edwardsville School District #7, Dave was able to bring Midwestern kids a new look at meteorology and television LIVE from the Gulf Coast!
