All Weather, Inc., a manufacturer of weather information systems and meteorological sensors, has partnered with the McClellan Aviation Museum Foundation to create a hands-on, real data weather station for the new Aerospace Learning Center at Freedom Park, Calif.
Part of a $7 million expansion, the new learning center will house 21 displays to give visitors an interactive experience related to aviation, from pilot to mechanic to air traffic controller.
One of the main displays concerns weather. The McClellan Foundation has chosen All Weather, Inc. to develop an interactive weather station for visitors to learn how weather information is collected, interpreted, and disseminated. The company has donated more than $45,000 in equipment to the project and will work with Claro Creative Studios to design the exhibit.
Visitors and students will have hands-on experiences with the weather sensors and equipment and learn how they perform their tasks. In addition, they will be able to observe real time weather, interact with various screen displays, and hear the radio broadcast that goes out to pilots.
Until the Learning Center is complete, a scaled-down version of the weather station has been installed.
