Why do tornadoes form? What is wind shear? Unravels the mysteries of meteorology through visual representations and hands-on experiments. Fundamental atmospheric conditions that create what we call “weather” are be explored. Students learn about temperature, air pressure, the water cycle, and clouds. The program concludes with an “electrifying” demonstration of the properties of static electricity, which produces a current much like lightning.
