Weather Stations and Software for Schools
Every day, WeatherBug Schools make news all over the country. As the largest automated weather station network in the world, its information is used in the daily weather broadcasts of more than 70 television stations, including all the major networks. Millions of households tune in each week for live local conditions and forecasts thanks to the WeatherBug Schools Network.
The WeatherBug Schools Network is made up of more than 8,000 schools across the country using WeatherBug weather stations to integrate live, local weather data and the latest technology into classroom learning. This is made possible through WeatherBug Achieve, the award-winning software curriculum that integrates your weather station data or any other school in the network into the classroom.
In addition to the educational benefits, WeatherBug Schools receive severe weather alerts. These critical weather alerts can provide advanced warning of storms and other threats like flash floods, heat indices, wind and more. Schools equipped with WeatherBug Total Lightning benefit from cloud-to-cloud and cloud-to-ground lightning strike notification along with advanced warnings of severe weather sent directly to mobile phones, computers and external visual/audible alarms.
