Exhibition Details

Exhibition Name:

Wild Weather

Description: Wild Weather puts visitors directly in the path of a tornado, inside the eye of a hurricane, and in the midst of a raging winter storm as they learn about some of nature’s most powerful and destructive forces! In this highly immersive exhibition, produced in association with the Ontario Science Centre, visitors will experience the intensity and unpredictability of severe weather.

Through hands-on exhibits, multi-player challenges and interactive multimedia experiences, Wild Weather reveals how scientists are working to better forecast these events and help mitigate the impact on communities, infrastructure and lives. From the safety of the exhibit hall, this blockbuster exhibition also explores the effects of climate change on severe weather around the globe and teaches visitors how they can best weather the storm!

Highlights
• Dance up a storm with motion detection technology – more movement delivers a more intense storm experience!
• Study lighting in slow motion to understand the complexity hidden within a single ash.
• Explore the destructive power of a tornado using augmented reality.
• Get a view from the cockpit of a Hurricane Hunter aircraft as it flies through the storm, and follow the activities of the research crew.

Goals
The goals of the Wild Weather exhibition are to:
• Provide an engaging, immersive, and entertaining experience for visitors to explore severe weather – its power and its unpredictability;
• Increase visitors understanding of the science behind severe weather, its connection to the world’s changing climate, the emerging technologies and forecasting techniques; and
• Showcase the stories of people who are working to better understand severe weather events in order to improve our ability to predict and mitigate the impacts of severe weather, and prepare for future conditions as our climate changes.
