We refurbish weather stations for schools!
When AcuRite weather station parts and components are returned and replaced, we replace the units with brand new parts. Instead of tossing our returned parts into landfills, we’ve started a new program to repair and refurbish the AcuRite Atlas™ weather station sensors and parts to fully functioning near-new equipment. We receive hundreds of requests annually from schools, museums, camps, zoos, and other educational facilities for weather station donations to help build weather curriculum that compliments their existing weather and climate lesson plans. By donating these refurbished weather stations, plus an AcuRite Access™ for remote monitoring, the students have access to weather data measured right at their school from both the local display in their classrooms as well as the My AcuRite website and mobile app. Teachers are using their local weather data to teach their students how to track weather extremes and weather trends, while other groups rely on their hyper-local weather data for their agricultural program and outdoor classrooms.
