Brookside Elementary Science Career Fair

A team of atmospheric scientists set up a booth at the career fair with information about careers in the atmospheric sciences. Bri Dotson, Deanna Hence, Chad Smeltzer, and Mark Zelinka manned the booth and performed lab demos for interested children and their parents.

Deanna talks with an elementary school student about careers in atmospheric science.

Bri demonstrates how air pressure can crush a soda-pop can just as easily as stomping on it with your foot.

Mark and Deanna show students how easy it is to make a cloud in a bottle!
