Local Meteorlogist Gives Weather Presentation to Third Graders
Friday, October 23, 2020

SHERWOOD, Ark. -- Third graders at Sylvan Hills Elementary School got a special virtual visit from KARK/Fox 16 Meteorologist Hayden Nix. 

The students wrapped up the first nine week of learning about weather and received an extra lesson on meteorology from Nix. They learned all about weather; clouds, wind, the water cycle, snow, natural disasters, etc.

“My goal was to incorporate real world information to the students,” said third grade teacher Mrs. Hurt. “and to allow them to learn about a career in the weather field, which led us to Hayden Nix!”

Nix said KARK/Fox 16 meteorologists give about 40 weather-related presentations to students each year.
