Changes in climate over time have made for some wild weather events throughout history. In 2003, grapes were turned into raisins before being picked from the vine during a massive heat wave. With winds up to 150 miles per hour, Hurricane Andrew destroyed a breeding facility for pythons, setting 1000s of specimens loose in Dane County, Florida! Join us as we explore the mechanisms that lead to the weather we experience on a day-to-day basis and the factors that are changing our climate. Make your own mini greenhouse and extreme weather preparedness kit on the museum floor, then head up to the Learning Lab where you can explore wind currents and build your own weather station.
