Severe Weather Awareness Day at the Science Spectrum Happens Saturday, March 2nd
Friday on KFYO Mornings with Dave King and Matt Martin, James Nesmith from the Science Spectrum joined Matt Martin and Steve Evans to talk about upcoming events at the Science Spectrum.
Coming up on Saturday, March 2nd, 2019, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Science Spectrum in Lubbock (2579 S. Loop 289, Suite 250) will be holding its 13th annual Severe Weather Awareness Day. The event is hosted by graduates of the Texas Tech Atmospheric Science Department.
"They put this event on every year and they invite lots of different community partners to come out and talk about severe weather preparedness, disaster preparedness, and obviously to talk about weather science," Nesmith said.
The event will be free to attend, and there will be plenty to do, including hands-on activity stations where kids can learn about weather science, weather science demonstrations, raffles, and prizes. On top of this, there will be guests from The Salvation Army, the Red Cross, and local Animal Services, as well as storm chasers and the fire department.
For one day only, the film Tornado Alley, where you watch a group chase down a tornado and let it hit their vehicle, will be played. Tickets for the film will be $5.
Another upcoming event at the Science Spectrum is "Butterflies Alive," an event where they will have a greenhouse set up with many loose butterflies from all over the world. They will also be playing the film Flight of the Butterflies in the Omni Theater.
Other events include Spring Break camps for kids ages 4-12, and another film in the Omni Theater called Superpower Dogs that show working dogs in action.
