How are hot air, pressure, tornadoes and lightning part of the dynamic forces of weather? Your group will be blown away when you experience weather OMSI-style with our flaming tornado and indoor lightning.
OMSI’s stage programs bring concepts to life with thought-provoking demonstrations and audience participation. While the minimum number is 60 students, smaller groups are welcome to register for programs reserved by another group or pay the $180 minimum.
This program takes place in the OMSI Auditorium. Combine this program with a field trip to the museum.
