You need to love the great outdoors to participate in this month’s Classroom Connections topic – Ice Fishing. You also need to love the extreme cold. For ice fishermen, cold is good, and the colder it gets, the less competition.
But did you know that a little biology combined with some meteorology can greatly increase your odds at catching the big one? Air pressure can determine where fish will be in the water. That’s right; pressure has a really big affect on any type of fishing. WeatherBug Meteorologist Bay Scroggins ventures onto Lake Minnetonka near Minneapolis, MN, to learn more on how science can help determine success in this month’s Classroom Connections – Ice Fishing.

WeatherBug Schools now can show off their weather station data in a stylish new digital display! WeatherBug has added a new, bright and easy to read 15” LCD Display that automatically integrates weather station data and camera images. The plug-and-play display is desk and wall mountable and can be installed in school offices, classrooms, science labs, hallways and high traffic areas. It now comes standard with all WeatherBug packages for schools that join and will report the following in real-time:
- Current Conditions
- Forecast (3-day)
- Live and Time-lapse Camera (from your site or the closest camera to your location)
