Stormy Science

Stormy Science

Inquiry Room Investigation or Virtual Experience

Button up your raincoats and get ready to chase some storms! Become a water molecule and evaporate, condense, and freeze your way through the water cycle. Soar through the air on a convection current and get zapped as you learn how static electricity moves through the atmosphere to create lightning and thunder. Observe how energy moves through the oceans to give rise to tsunamis and how hurricanes and tornadoes are born!

For digital programs, our educators will work with your classroom to determine which platform works best to facilitate this experience.

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