Our Planet

Exhibit Hall – Level 4

Our Planet offers a flurry of interactive experiences through which guests can experience weather and earth science.   Brace yourself in the winds of a Category 1 hurricane, shake things up in an earthquake simulator, and find out what it feels like inside of a cloud! Plus, try out the green screen and report the weather at the WFTV 9 Severe Weather Center, or get a close-up look at the planets at Science on a Sphere.  
 

WFTV 9 Severe Weather Center

Become a meteorologist for the day and show “those guys” on TV how it’s really done! This experience is a working replica of the actual set used on WFTV’s weather forecasts. Learn how to put a weather forecast together using the same tools a meteorologist, then you can practice delivering it in front of a green screen – putting you right in the action as WFTV’s newest chief meteorologist!
