5th and 6th class recently researched and learned about the anemometers. An anemometer is a device used for measuring wind speed and direction. It is also a common weather station instrument. We learned that the stronger the wind blows, the faster the cups rotate. The anemometer counts the number of rotations, which is used to calculate wind speed. We had great fun discussing and drawing our own designs, deciding what would work best and putting our plans into action by creating our own anemometers. It was fantastic to take our constructions outside to test them out for ourselves. Check out our image gallery for more exciting photos of our experiment in action!
