Doppler on Wheels Visits Alcott Elementary School

The Doppler on Wheels exhibit paid a visit to fourth and fifth-grade students from Alcott Elementary last Wednesday, thanks to the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center.

Students had the opportunity to see one of only three Doppler on Wheels vehicles in the country, and observe the radar along with related weather computers and equipment.

In addition, students learned about the radar, and had the opportunity to climb into the truck and see the inside workings of the system.
