Mrs. Crystal Perno, Acadia Middle School Science teacher, is featured in News & Updates of the New York State Master Teacher Program’s (NYSMTP) webpage.

Ms. Perno, a NYS Master Teacher emeritus, presented alongside Dr. Junhong (June) Wang from the University at Albany sharing how she uses the Mesonet weather station resources in her science classroom. She learned of the Mesonet resources through her participation in the STEM Research Institute sponsored by Questar III BOCES in summer 2020. Her presentation inspired attendees to consider applications to their own curriculum and grade levels.  “Dr. Wang gave a great overview of all the resources and the technology behind Mesonet and Crystal Perno showed some applications of what can be done with the data…I cannot wait to use this site with my students,” commented an elementary school teacher in the Vestal School District in the Southern Tier.

Plans are in process for additional workshops so that these resources reach more NYS classrooms.
