Officially introduced on June 14, Wild Weather is a new and interactive exhibit at Science North that immerses visitors in the subject of climate change.
“It’s a fabulous exhibit that's going to make the impacts of climate change more visible and real to audiences by talking about extremes in temperature and extremes in weather occurrences.” said Guy Labine, CEO of Science North.
Maurice Bitran, head of the Ontario Science Centre, said staff at his centre and Science North worked together for two years to develop the attraction.
"You know, everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it, as the saying goes," he said. "Guy Labine and I got together and we decided it was high time we do something, not about the weather itself, but the underlying causes that produce these ... frequent and strong weather patterns we are observing all around the world."
The 600-square-metre exhibition is the 11th traveling exhibition from Science North and will be on display until Sept. 10.
