Storms, lightning, tornadoes … oh my!
Weather is one of the most dynamic and complex forces that shapes our planet and affects our daily lives. Get a close-up look at some of the most astonishing and intense natural phenomena in this week dedicated to Extreme Weather.

  • whip up a storm as you create a tornado in a bottle
  • learn how meteorologists measure wind speed with an anemometer
  • experiment with lasers and thermochromic paper to discover the invisible world of infrared heat
