Meyer in the News - May/June, 2012:
While school was out for the summer, two of Meyer Academy’s middle school students got lessons in putting together a weather forecast and presenting it live on television.
See photos below of students Alex Levine (entering 7th grade) and Nicole Schneider (entering 8th grade) following in the footsteps of Meyer student Aaron Simons (entering 7th grade), who was the first Meyer student to participate in CBS 12’s Wednesday Weather Kid segment. Simons met with CBS 12’s long-time morning meteorologist Chris Farrell in May and did his own brief “Bus Stop Weather” segment for the morning news.
We appreciate CBS 12’s commitment to educational experiences like these, which expose our students to the science involved in meteorology and the fascinating behind-the-scenes world of television news and weather. These kinds of experiences help our students take what they’ve learned in the classroom and apply it to real life situations.
