An affordable rawinsonde system that has proven helpful in teaching undergraduate meteorology is described. Not only have planned and written exercises been designed around data from the rawinsonde launches, but the actual launches themselves have encouraged an active learning process among the students. In addition, the equipment has enabled undergraduate students to participate in a number of research projects.
