WeatherReady Fest is about kids having fun while learning basic meteorological concepts. Kids will pretend they are FedEx airplanes avoiding thunderstorms in a fun exercise. They will be thunderstorms dumping heavy rain on different kinds of ground using the Ward’s Flood Plain Model. The inventor of the activity will actually be at the Fest!
Young people will get to make their very own tornado in a jar. They will get to meet Owlie Skywarn! They will splash their way to learning about rainfall measurements. They will get to build a house with solar panels and actually light it! They will harness the power of wind energy with a pinwheel that they construct. They will make a wind sock.
They will learn the difference between a watch and a warning.
There will be fire engines and the command vehicle from local Emergency Management. A local LA television station will have its vehicles there.
The National Weather Association WeatherReady Fest will take place at the Discovery Cube OC in Santa Ana in Orange County on Saturday, September 16, 2017 from 10:00 AM until 4:00 PM. You must purchase admission to the Cube in order to attend WeatherReady Fest.
