Who it's for: families, educators

A new addition to the Tempest family, the Weather Science Kit is ideal for young families and children, educators or education centers, or even new weather geeks looking to expand their introductory knowledge of the weather world. Gifts related to STEM education make great gifts for curious young minds and turn any home with a Tempest into a classroom. With a Weather Science Kit, we’d recommend…
A Small But Mighty Microscope 

If you’ve got a growing kid that’s interested in weather, science, or anything outdoors, chances are they love checking out small things they find outside (whether we love it or not). Give them a chance to flex their science skills and examine things a little closer with a microscope. This one is battery-powered, portable, and a great introductory tool for kids interested in science.

Rock and Mineral Sample Box 

While not weather-related, if your child is interested in the weather and the world around them, it’s a good bet they’ll love checking out the different rocks and minerals included in this sample box.

With a WEATHERmeter for Agriculture, we’d recommend…

Farm Boots

While knowing the weather when working on a farm can be helpful, any true farmer will know that the day-to-day work that needs to be done on the farm stops for no weather. Keep your farm or barn manager feeling warm and dry this winter season with a pair of waterproof chore boots that are built to last.
