Britta Merwin, meteorologist for KPRC Channel 2 news in Houston, visits with first graders at Woodland Hills Elementary.  "Our G/T students are working on a Texas Performance Standards Project studying extreme weather," said WHE G/T Teacher Betsy Duplecahin. "Britta provided background information on her career  as a scientist and meteorologist  working in the television industry and she also performed an experiment on air pressure and did an interactive "Hurricane Hop" with the students demonstrating how hurricanes form." Her presentation included time for the WHE students to have a question and answer session with her. Watch her give a shout out to WHE on the news!
