DENVER - Close to 10,000 students attended Weather and Science Day before the Colorado Rockies played the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday.

The 9NEWS Weather Team helped show the students some neat tricks with the help of the Little Shop of Physics, http://bit.ly/4cFdLW.

Students took the stands as 9NEWS Meteorologists started the science lessons.

Students first used talking strips from their science bags to reproduce a sound on the strips. This taught them about vibration.

Later, the meteorologists taught the students how light interacts with glasses the students were wearing. The kids were all surprised when a Colorado State University Rams logo appeared.

Lastly, the students used small pipes at their seats to show how air curves around a ball. Changing the direction of the motion requires a force, so there was a force on the ball as well. 

"[It was] perfect weather to learn about science on the baseball field," 9NEWS Meteorologist Kathy Sabine said.
