Come to the Discovery CUBE theater at 10:30 AM, 12:30 PM, and 2:30 PM, meet OWLIE SKYWARN and your National Weather Service meteorologists, and learn to be smarter than the weather in the National Weather Association’s Young Meteorologist Program Weather Show!

Developed in partnership with The NOAA/National Weather Service (NWS) and The National Education Association, PLAN!T NOW’s Young Meteorologist Program (‘YMP’) takes families on a severe weather preparedness adventure where they encounter fun trails in lightning, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and winter storms, and learn about severe weather science and safety. In 2012, the game was awarded The National Weather Association’s PUBLIC EDUCATION award.

Now, in partnership with Weather-Ready Nation, the digital game is also an integral part of public education/community engagement events that are happening across the country called The WRN Young Meteorologist Program WeatherFest rallies. The ‘WRN YMP WeatherFest rallies’ are a nexus for local and regional civic stakeholders and help mobilize communities to get prepared for severe weather – learn to be ‘smarter than the weather’ at a YMP WeatherFest rally near you!

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.
