Abstract
The majority of students and educators would probably agree that students are better able to grasp scientific concepts from the use of hands-on activities and other inquiry-based educational practices than from typical lecture problem solving methods. Anasphere, Inc is working to make inquiry based tools and materials for weather and climate education more readily available for students and educators and given current global climate change issues the importance of educating students in these areas is of vital national and global importance. The AnaSonde, Anaspheres privately developed radiosonde, is the perfect teaching tool with which students can gain handson experience when learning about weather and climate science; however, its current user pool is very limited due to the requirement that users have an amateur radio license.
