- Teachers learned the basics of different weather disturbances and rain producing weather systems
- WeatherPhilippines will conduct a series of Weather 101 / Tropical Cyclone 101 trainings for DepEd regional offices nationwide
WeatherPhilippines teamed up with CitySavings for a whole-day Weather 101 training for DepEd-NCR last August 20.
Teachers became students who listened attentively to lectures, unlearned old weather misconceptions and acquired new ones, and actively participated in activities—all conducted by Leonilo Millanes, one of WeatherPhilippines’s seasoned meteorologists.
The weather course covered basic concepts, processes, and effects of different weather disturbances and rain-producing weather systems in the country. It also equipped participants with the necessary weather knowledge for formulating contingency plans and coming up with appropriate decisions to mitigate the adverse effects of weather-related disasters. Capping off the day, the teachers took on a storm-tracking exercise that challenged and revealed inquisitive and competitive sides in the group.
“I am glad to be a part of this event. I would have missed a lot if I chose not to attend this Weather 101 / Tropical Cyclone 101. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to rediscover weather and its revelance in the present times,” said one of the participants during the culminating part of the program.
