Students at Randolph School now know a little more about severe weather.

Wednesday morning, Western Kentucky University's White Squirrel Weather Team visited the school. They brought an interactive mobile classroom and forecast center.

Students in 4th, 6th, 7th and 8th grades were able to rotate through different stations to learn more about severe weather, tropical weather, tornadoes and storm chasing.

Teachers say they hope this inspires students to study meteorology.

"We really need to invest in the younger generation right now, so when they come up, it just builds back out into our local community," said Josh Durkee with White Squirrel Weather Team.
