Fourier’s Weather Station is a sturdy, solar-powered, wireless unit for teaching Earth Science to middle school and high school students. This, easy-to-use station features 6 built-in sensors: Temperature, Humidity, Barometric Pressure, Rain Collector, Wind Speed and Wind Direction.

The weather station features a wireless data transmitter that transmits data to a receiver connected to the PC USB or serial port, with a range of 300 meters.




WeatherLab 2.5 
Analyzing the data with the WeatherLab software enables students to create monthly weather reports, view real-time data, compare results with earlier data, perform functions like average, minimum, maximum and export data to spread sheets. This allows users to easily configure different types of stations by selecting different sensors.

In addition, the WeatherLab application allows students to present data in a number of different views, such as, meter, graph and table. Recorded data can also be exported to Excel for further analysis and mathematical manipulation.
