Include any other comments or information you want the Commission to consider in evaluating your compliance with the Children's Television Act (or use this space for supplemental explanations). This may include information on any other noncore educational and informational programming that you aired this quarter or plan to air during the next quarter, or any existing or proposed non-broadcast efforts that will enhance the educational and informational value of such programming to children. See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. WCFT-TV aka ABC 33/40 produced an educational DVD and website project that we have titled " The ABC's of Weather". This DVD was designed to enhance student's weather knowledge in a variety of ways: visiting the classroom, covering weather information with a slide show and some hands on experiments, and providing a place to go to learn more about Alabama's weather. This DVD answers common questions, not so common questions, and some interesting facts about Alabama's weather. This is a very useful resource for students and teachers alike. Each chapter of the DVD is meant to provide insight into how weather works, why the weather is so variable, severe weather safety, and a look inside our weather office. Our meteorologists visits hundreds of schools each year. We put a lot of information in front of students hoping to leave them with a lasting excitement about science and some great weather knowledge. This DVD and web project allows us to not only have face to face conversations about how wonderful science is, but we also now have something concrete and fun for the students to use in class and at home. It is our way of sharing as much information as possible in the information age. The ABC's of Weather DVD was approved by the state of Alabama to be added as part of all schools curriculum for school age students 9-12 years old. The DVD became part of the school cirriculum in the 2008-2009 school year. AMSTI acted as the circulatory for this DVD to all schools in the state.
