Meteorology course?

Recommended Posts

DD, 15, would like to do a year long course on meteorology next year.  She has completed Biology and Chemistry already, using Apologia products.  They do not have a specific meteorology course, and I'm not having much luck finding any otherwise.  Can someone recommend a course that they've used or are familiar with? I would prefer it to have a Christian slant, but its not 100% necessary.  DD is advanced, so could also handle a college-level course online if anyone knows of any.  She attends a community college for several classes, but they don't offer meteorology.

I don't have curriculum ideas. But, if your dd has not already done so, she might like to build a Stevenson box/screen with analogue weather instruments. Also, some government agencies, such as NOAA, use volunteer local weather recorders. For example, you can get online plans for making snow boards and directions for measuring snowfall. I was reminded of this during the recent blizzard when I read that snow at Dulles International Airport had been measured inaccurately, lol.
