Wild Weather - Now open at Science North

Wild Weather immerses visitors of all ages in the science of severe weather. Delve into current severe weather science, discover cutting edge technology and investigate the stories of scientists, forecasters and passionate enthusiasts. Visitors will leave the exhibition feeling like they have been saturated in severe weather elements.

The exhibition provides visitors an engaging and entertaining opportunity to explore the power and unpredictability of severe weather. Visitors will gain a better understanding of the science behind severe weather, its connection to climate change, emerging technologies and forecasting techniques. They will also hear the stories of people who are working to better understand these events and help mitigate the impacts of severe weather on communities, infrastructure and lives.

Upon entering the exhibition, visitors are drawn into the science behind tornadoes, hurricanes, heat waves, thunderstorms and severe winter storms through interactive exhibits, multimedia experiences, models and large-scale graphics. They experience what it’s like to fly a research aircraft through a hurricane, view the destruction of tornadoes, follow turbulent cloud formations and lightning strikes, become a citizen scientist in the midst of a raging winter storm, and meet a researcher studying the force of wind in the lab.

Upon exiting Wild Weather, visitors explore different weather phenomena from around the world, common weather myths and have the chance to be “blown away” in a staged hurricane photo opportunity.
