Being a weather and climate researcher for a day
Girl's Day at ETH Zurich, July 2017

How is it to be a weather and climate researcher? On 20 July 2017 18 girls (10 and 13 years) visited ETH Zurich and learned about weather and climate. The girls had the chance to measure atmospheric parameters (e.g. relative humidity and pressure) with their instruments built by their own during the course, simulated the global circulation and learned about the climate system.

The event was organized by IACETH in collaboration with the ETH gender equality office Equal!. The experiment day was advertised as a Pro Juventute event.

ETH Science City Junior children's lecture on top performances of the atmosphere, November 2014

The atmosphere is full of top performances! There are many examples: tornadoes can reach wind speeds of up to 500 kilometers per hour - even the speediest formula 1 car can only go as fast as 370 km/h. And who would have thought that cloud droplets can grow by one hundred times their size in only half an hour to become rain drops? Who knows how much a lightning flash heats the surrounding air? This and more Prof. Ulrike Lohmann presented to a lecture hall filled with curious children on 16 November 2014. Click here to see the November 2014 ETH Science City brochure.(de)
