CLARK — At Carl H. Kumpf Middle School in Clark this past week, Miss Franko’s Earth Science classes were learning about the different types of weather patterns and how they come to be. One of the important concepts they learned was about the global winds that can be found over long distance and last for a long time as well. These winds are created from the uneven heating of the Earth and to help demonstrate the cause, students participated in a demonstration. In this demonstration a globe and a flashlight were used to represent the Earth and the Sun. By moving the flashlight up and down the students were able to see how depending on the angle the Sun lands on the Earth dictates how much Sun that area receives. Michael LaStella, Ashley Russell, Leanna Marasco, and Kylee Zawacki can be seen above performing the demonstration. (Photo courtesy of Clark Public Schools)
