VIDEO: Singapore Poly students go on storm-chasing trip to Tucson, Arizona

PHOTOS: Lynus Hee/Singapore Polytechnic Eight second-year students from Singapore Polytechnic's School of Digital Media and Infocomm Technology (DMIT) left for Tucson, Arizona for a six-day storm chasing trip. They were accompanied by their lecturer, Mr Lynus Hee, and their storm-chasing activities were headed by Mr Alister Chapman, a world renowned storm chaser from England who has produced programs for Discovery Channel, BBC and National Geographic. During one storm-chasing outing, student Mr Muhamad Faiz Abdul Rahim thought he was going to get struck by lightning when, as the team ran away from an oncoming storm, he tripped and got tangled up in barbed wire. More in The New Paper on Saturday (Sep 3). Watch videos of the students' adventures in Tucson below:
