Jump into the world of weather! This installation allows kids to use their bodies to conjure a storm, release a twisting tornado or unleash bolts of lightning from their fingertips. They can experience mighty winds, bone-rattling earthquakes, swirling fog, dazzling sunshine and blizzards that will make them shiver!
