This virtual field trip takes students to Keesler Air Force Base located in Biloxi, Mississippi. Keesler is home to the Hurricane Hunters, an elite group of airmen who travel into the center of hurricanes in order to provide key tracking data. Your students are sure to be captivated by the photos and information provided in this Powerpoint Presentation. Additionally, the presentation offers nine "missions" to be completed by students, including activities such as watching a linked Hurricane Hunters video, visiting the linked National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) website, and writing an article from the perspective of a storm reporter.
