You must choose a suitable state in the USA to set up your business (think about Tornado Alley).<br />Step 1 – Produce an advert to put in a Job Centre for a new colleague to help you to storm chase. This advert should include details of the skills necessary to understand the formation of Tornadoes, to chase them and to keep customers safe. <br />Step 2 – Produce an advert for a National Newspaper (Word, Publisher) or TV channel (PowerPoint) of your choice advertising your services. The following must be explained in your advert :<br />
      • Give your company a name e.g. Tegan’s Extreme Twister Experience
      • What are Tornadoes ?
      • Where do they form ?

      • When do they form ?
      • How are they measured ?
      • Why do people pay to ‘chase’ tornadoes ?
