Join us in front of the Kenwood IRC, adjacent to the new UWM Welcome Center, along Kenwood Blvd. beginning at 11:00 am for a radiosonde (or weather balloon) demonstration and release! The Vaisala team will be present through noon to help collect the weather balloon data and for one-on-one conversations. At noon, join us in EMS W434 for a presentation about Vaisala equipment and careers, led by Vaisala’s Chris Vagasky.
