Planet Science

Planet Science Weather Labs is a mass participation activity accredited to CREST SuperStar. Planet Science exists to offer young scientists of school age the inspiration and excitement that will support their study of science at school and beyond. It is there to support classrooms, curriculum, textbooks and teachers - but not by going over the same ground as they cover. Instead, their mission is to tickle your curiosity, excite your interest, and unleash your passions in science.

Weather Labs
Weather Labs is a science engagement activity for that focuses on measuring, recording, experimental method, and data analysis. A range of skills and knowledge areas are covered. These include, at the most basic, the processes of setting up simple instruments and reading their displays, to at the more advanced end, understanding the use of data in prediction.
