Explore the untamed forces of nature that impact the world around us. Our new exhibit, Wild Weather, opens Feb. 23.
Wild Weather is a 6,000 square-foot exhibit designed to immerse and engage visitors of all ages in the science of severe weather.
From hurricanes to blizzards, tornadoes to severe heat, this exhibit provides visitors with unique opportunities to explore severe weather: tag along aboard a research flight through a hurricane, witness the power of tornadoes, follow turbulent cloud formations and lightning strikes, become a community scientist in the midst of a raging winter storm, and meet a researcher studying the force of wind in the lab.
Through these unique experiences, you will discover how emerging technologies and recent scientific discoveries are improving our ability to forecast severe weather and enhancing our awareness of global weather phenomena.
The exhibit is divided into key themed areas, each containing a mix of experiments, challenges, models, computer interactives, multimedia experiences, and full-scale images.
