The education programme of the SAEON Arid Lands Node is all set to enter a new field of activity.

The node recently donated two weather stations to schools in the Kimberley area. The launch event of the programme was hosted by Thabane High School situated in one of the biggest townships in Kimberley, Galeshewe.

Weather stations were presented to the headmasters of the participating schools on the day of the event.

The schools will soon be fully equipped to measure and record weather conditions minute by minute, including rainfall, temperature, humidity and wind direction.
