ATLANTA — Join the 11 Alive Stormtrackers as we explore the science behind storms and storm tracking!
Are you curious how we predict the weather? How it rains? What is a radar and how we use it to detect rotating thunderstorms and tornadoes? This event is for you!
11Alive is partnering with Emory University and the Atlanta Science Festival to host a 90-minute, family-friendly event that will feature both an interactive science on-stage demo and smaller learning sessions to explore the science behind thunderstorms. We'll explain how we broadcast live from the field chasing all types of extreme weather with 11Alive's Thunder Truck too!
Severe weather can and does happen any time of year in Georgia. For the Atlanta area, we see our peak of severe weather in the spring months: March, April and May. This event will not only showcase how we predict weather but more on thunderstorms and tornado safety.
The event will take place Saturday, March 19 from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Emory Math and Science Center. Parking is available for free at the nearby Oxford Parking Deck.
This is a ticketed, limited-capacity event. You must register to attend. The content will be geared towards school-aged students grades K-6. Please allow families to take priority for tickets.
