Predicting Weather

Predicting Weather

Science On a Sphere experience

Immerse your students into an engaging experience utilizing 3-D data visualization on the Science on a Sphere Theater’s 5-foot sphere. Discover the complex interactions and movement of air masses on our interactive globe. Students will collect real-time data on temperature, clouds, pressure, precipitation, and wind to make a weather prediction.

In-person capacity may be limited in compliance with public health guidelines in effect on the day of your visit.
