“Aim the Hurricane” online game and other NOAA games

Since it is now Atlantic tropical season, you might enjoy trying out this game from the National Hurricane Center on how to control hurricane paths by careful placement of high and low pressure centers. While it’s designed for teachers and kids, even older “kids” like us can learn how forecasting of hurricane paths is not an easy task, especially when you consider that in the real world, the centers of high and low pressure are also moving. Give it a “whirl” at http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/outreach/games/movncane.htm.

UPDATE: Also see this NOAA site for other weather and climate games you can use for kids: https://games.noaa.gov/.
