Middle School Kids of New Mexico will get to be a part of the storm chasing mission. They will assume the roles of little scientists and plan the flight into tropical storm Cindy with our experts and the pilot crew. They will decide where to fly and in which pattern, handle the instruments and analyze the data from the mission. The storm that we will recreate at Ted Turner’s ranch was the first storm of the 2017 hurricane season, followed by Harvey and Irma. Using real observations and images from Cindy, we will recreate a day full of excitement and cool science. We will use a helicopter and a hot air balloon instead of the research plan, a bit of imagination on where the most dangerous clouds are, while everything else will mimic the real field project mission from June 2017 and our flight into Cindy.
