What happens when children and scientists learn together? A partnership is formed, that's what! This article describes how a university scientist and a teacher teamed up with a local fourth-grade teacher to provide a unique opportunity for students to observe real scientists at work and enhance their knowledge of weather at the same time. The project was designed to raise profile of meteorology in the school curriculum and to demonstrate to students and teachers that physics and mathematics (via meteorology) have great practical importance. Their ultimate goal was to engage and inspire children and young adults in science. The experiences described here were part of that initiative. (Contains 2 online resources.)
