This project was started because of a previous project. When it came time to complete all the requirements to finish the project it would have cost at least eight hundred dollars for a weather balloon. The decision was to come up with another project dealing with snow since there weren't any projects dealing with snow. Let's get started. First, the needed materials before starting are, a centimeter marked ruler and hypothesis and a purpose or problem.
After getting a ruler in centimeter measurements, clipboard, and a writing utensil the next step is to record the problem and hypothesis. The hypothesis is "I believe the amount of calamity days (disaster or catastrophe days) have decreased. The problem or purpose of why this specific project was picked is everyone likes school closing days in the winter.
It was critical to figure out how snowfall affects our school calamity days. So every calamity day we have measurements would have to be taken. The Roswell Kent Middle School field is where the measurements were taken. Data was taken in centimeters instead of inches because Globe Protocol uses centimeters.
Then record the data on to the results sheet. Next, Is to come up with a title for the project which is, "Snowfall Contributions To School Calamity Days: A Climatological Study." As copies of the work fly fresh out of the printer, the last thing being worked on is the conclusion, which explains how could this experiment improve or lead into another study. Now everything is put together on the board. It's time to compete against the competition and make it to districts Science Fair.
