Severe weather is a powerful and unpredictable force that causes great damage to communities, infrastructure, and lives.
Wild Weather is a highly interactive and entertaining exhibition that is designed to immerse and engage visitors in the science of severe weather.
Visitors are given unique opportunities to experience severe weather: they will experience a research flight through a hurricane, witness the destruction of tornadoes, follow turbulent cloud formations and lightning
strikes, become citizen scientists in the midst of a raging winter storm, and meet a researcher studying the force of wind in the lab.
Through the exhibition’s unique experiences, visitors will discover how emerging technologies and recent scientific discoveries are improving our ability to forecast severe weather and prepare for future climate changes.
Wild Weather is developed in partnership with the Ontario Science Centre.
