Storm-E is an engaging, culminating event to any weather unit. The classroom becomes a command center of experts to make weather predictions. Air pressure, humidity, temperature, and wind data is analyzed by your team of experts and they are asked to help make decisions to hold or cancel outdoor events based on maps, charts, graphs, and satellite images provided to each team.

Each team is required to give multiple weather forecast reports to the Chief Meteorologist at the Challenger Learning Center.

Challenger Learning Center at Wheeling University (West Virginia)

Wheeling, WV
United States

In addition to offering award winning, state-of-the-art programs in a $500,000 space simulator, the Challenger Learning Center, thanks to technology, brings its innovative programs to distant classrooms around the world through its electronic distance-learning programs, known as e-Missions. The CLC flies more than 800 e-Missions for schools, many located in traditionally underserved districts, each year. We provide FREE Teacher Training sessions via video conference for any of our distance learning programs.

The Challenger Learning Center® also offers adult and student learners the chance to climb aboard a space station and complete a mission in the role of astronauts, scientists, and engineers with its Corporate Missions. A successful mission requires critical thinking, leadership, cooperation, and problem solving.

Program Details


Day 1-3 maps are completed prior to the video conference event. These maps are used to give their initial forecast at the beginning of the vc. The students then complete Day 4 maps (air pressure, temperature, humidity and wind) to reassess the situation on Day 4 to give a final forecast report to the Chief Metereologist at the Challenger Learning Center.


Students will be able to prepare weather maps, understand changing weather conditions and use their weather knowledge to predict the weather in Dayton, OH. They will be asked to make recommendations to either hold or cancel planned events based on their weather forecasts.
