Learning & Stuff

When the National Weather Association gets to town August 25-30, 2018 in St. Louis for their 43rd Annual Meeting, the focus will be on learning. But for the kickoff event for the public on Saturday, August 25th, the learning will come with a double helping of fun with many “hands-on” activities to engage children and adults!

Kids will get to play the Young Meteorologist Program game and learn how to protect you and your family from severe weather, and learning the difference between a weather watch and a weather warning, while collecting stamps on their very own WeatherReady Fest Passport Booklets to earn cool weather prizes!

Adults will love learning about making their severe weather safety kits, how flood waters in the Mississippi River could impact the St. Louis area, and talking with weather experts.

Everyone will love seeing equipment from the local news and emergency management agencies, as well as meeting local and national meteorologists.

And the perfect place for this to be held is at the Saint Louis Science Center, where they put the element of fun into science! Admission is free for WeatherReady Fest, but you must order your free tickets online so you will be guaranteed to receive the 2018 Passport Booklet, and for your chance to win door prizes.

Tickets for this event will be available starting in March 2018.

The National Weather Association Foundation WeatherReady Fest will take place in St. Louis on Saturday, August 25, 2018 from 10:00 AM until 4:00 PM.
