Weather Labs is CREST Star accredited! To find out how you can earn a CREST Star, go toWeather Labs CREST Star Investigators.

 

Erin, weather forecaster

To get you started, we've got all you need to know about measuring weather, using your own tools or the web. There are videos, podcasts and experiments. Have fun and do get wet.
