AgWeatherNet demo attracts learners of all ages

Posted by | March 17, 2015

AgWeatherNet Director Gerrit Hoogenboom recently visited the Washington State University Tri-Cities campus to share information about the university’s 160 automated weather stations across the state.

Angelo Bravo, 13 (left), came to Dr. Hoogenboom's AgWeatherNet presentation because has aspired to be a meteorologist since age 3! He's pictured here with his mother Sylvia and brother Sonny (10).

Not only was there a crowd of WSU viticulture and enology students, but 13-year-old Angelo Bravo came to learn more about being a meteorologist — a career he’s been interested in since age 3! His mother Sylvia said, “When other kids were watching cartoons, he was watching the weather channel.”

Thanks for visiting, Dr. Hoogenboom, and we look forward to your weather predictions, Angelo.
