Grade 4 October Field Trip

Our field trip to the Nagoya Local Meteorological Observatory and Nagoya TV Tower was a wonderful success!  After a short trip down the Higashiyama Subway Line, we traveled up a few hills to reach the Observatory. The students enjoyed their time learning about the ins-and-outs of weather science data collection.  Our guide was especially kind and spoke to us in English! He said that we were the first students from an International School to visit the Meteorological Center. After the tour, we traveled back on the Higashiyama Line to Sakae, where the students enjoyed the climb up to 100m in the Nagoya TV Tower.  On the outer observatory deck, the students were able to experience the strong nature of the winds that are always above us, though often blocked by buildings and the earth below. This helped clearly explain to them the fact that the Atmosphere is fluid, and never stands still. It was great!
