Some pupils from an experimental primary school in Donghai County, Lianyungang City, East China's Jiangsu Province, were organized to visit a local meteorological service to learn about meteorological knowledge during a science popularization activity on September 15, ahead of the National Science Day which will fall on September 19 this year.
The activity was expected to help pupils better acquaint with weather variations through observation, and improve their understanding of nature. The children got an up-close look at the meteorological instruments and equipment, and experienced the process of weather monitoring and forecasting under the guidance of the meteorological service's staff members.
The National Science Day was initiated by the China Association for Science and Technology in 2003, and this year marks its 17th anniversary.
