If you are creative enough and don’t like to spend extra dollar on a new replacement rain gauge to the recently broken one, why not start collecting your tools and equipment and make your own homemade rain gauge? It can be so much fun especially if you do it together with your kids or family. It can also be a great science project for students to learn more about weather ? specifically rain and its water cycle. Doing your own homemade rain gauge only requires minimal tools. Here are some guides on how you can start with this project.
Basic Overview of the Rain Gauge
The use of a rain gauge, while may not interesting to many, can actually be useful especially because it allows us to learn and compare the rain fall trend from this season to another. It also allows us to know the weather even on those times when we were asleep. It affords us little excitement when there is a fore coming thunderstorm or heavy rain. And gives us compensation to minimal extent on those times when we know the disadvantages of wet days.
