PAGASA, which is also known as “The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration” is a government-mandated agency that provides information to the public in order to ensure the safety, well-being and economic security of the people of the Philippines. It also provides a wealth of information to the public to help them better understand meteorology, hydrology, climatology, astronomy and other geophysical sciences.

The computers in the picture told students how weather is predicted

Grade 8 and Grade 9 students, as well as their teachers Ms. Madhumita Saini and Ms. Marian Asuncion,  went to PAGASA to learn and understand how the organization predicts weather.

The students were accompanied by two of their science teachers

It is important for students to understand how weather is predicted because these predictions affect our day to day activities. Students should also understand that weather prediction is not as easy and as straightforward as it may appear to be.

One of the employees of PAGASA showed the students how a tipping bucket recorder worked. It is a rain gauge and it's considered as one of the most traditional tools used for weather station applications.

The Grade 9 students then learned how to correlate the weather predictions to benefit people with heart anomalies.
