Children & Adult Programs

Sure we have great exhibits at the Weather Discovery Center, but we also offer fun and educational programming! From pre-school to teen to adult, our yearly schedule has something for all ages.

Windy Weekend
Saturday April 1- Sunday April 2
Cost – Free with paid admission

Sharp contrasts of cold air to the north and warm air to the south create March winds. As the Earth rotates toward the sun and daylight increases, the atmosphere warms. When warm southern air and cool northern air meet, the differences in temperature creates pressure. This pressure creates wind!  Visit our classroom for some windy activities and a snack, free with paid admission! 

Extreme Weather Program
Saturday April 29  10:00 a.m.- 12:00 p.m.
Cost – $12 per person

Participants will learn about several different types of extreme weather and how to be prepared for extreme weather situations through cool STEM activities. Snack and free time on the exhibits is included. This program is suitable for a target age range of 6-13 years.  

Glow in the Dark Day
