Robert Fitzroy and the “evolution” of weather forecasting -  BLOG  Robert Fitzroy is mostly remembered as  the captain of the HMS Beagle during Charles Darwin’s famous voyages of 1828-1836. His complex role in those landmark voyages and his turbulent relationship with Darwin are well documented by scholars. What is often overlooked about Fitzroy’s life, though, are his significant contributions to weather forecasting and modern meteorology.

Making an anemometer - STUDENT ACTIVITY:   Anemometers measure wind speed. The faster they turn, the stronger the wind.  In this activity, students will construct a simple anemometer. This activity supports the development of the science capabilities, especially ‘Gather and interpret data’, ‘Use evidence’ and ‘Critique evidence’.

English astronomer John Robinson invented the anemometer in Anemometers measure wind speed and have become one of the essential tools for weather forecasting.
