About 11 News Weather Class

KKTV 11 News has created a program called 11 News Weather Class to give teachers in our local schools another tool in teaching about the weather.  These courses are each taught by a member of the 11 News Weather Team: Brian Bledsoe, Branden Borremans, or Sarah Schwabe.  The presentations and materials are free.  There is no cost to your school. 

What Is Required?

A laptop, projector, and speakers are needed for the presentation.  If you cannot provide them, please notify us in advance.  Teachers will need to provide crayons or markers for coloring exercises if desired.  At the end of each 11 News Weather Class, teachers will be given certificates which they can fill out for their students.
