Singapore Met Office

On the 6th of July, the SST Astronomy Club visited the Singapore Meteorological Office. We had a talk about the weather instruments and sensors used in the forecast office. Also, we learnt about what meteorologists do. It was an enriching experience for all of us. Later then, we toured around the office. We ended that exciting session by exploring the Changi Airport. Thanks to all teachers and meteorological officers who made that day possible for us.
