An interactive Web-based severe weather activity has been developed at Iowa State University with broad applications to motivate student learning. The exercise uses an extensive archive of weather data emphasizing warm-season severe convective events and cold-season winter storms. Several variations of the activity have been developed based upon the meteorological background of students. The flexible design of the activity may allow for its use in K-12 settings, or as a significant training tool for weather forecasters outside the classroom.
