Al Jazeera America Films NWI Research for Tech Program



ALA journalist Shini Somara, who has a doctorate in mechanical engineering/computational fluid dynamics, demonstrates 
	the motion of the wind in VorTECH, the tornado simulator at NWI.

Al Jazeera America, an American news channel, visited the NWI research facilites the other day. The cable news channel filmed all day working with Dr. Darryl James, Dr. Ernie Kiesling, and Prof. Larry Tanner, and the footage was edited for a complete 15-minute television program in the series TechKnow which aired in early January.

Many thanks to everyone who helped to make this media visit successful.
