Dr. Karen Kosiba tracks tornadoes across the great plains. She drives a Doppler vehicle. How kewl is that? In fact, Dr. Kosiba uses satellites, weather balloons, doppler radars and more cool technologically advanced gear to monitor changes in the earth’s atmosphere.

Could you try a few backyard experiments with your friends or parents?  Measure humidity with a home-made hygrometer, air pressure with a barometer or make fog in a jar!

Dr. Karen Kosiba is part of this kewl group, called the Nifty Fifty Scientists!
