Weather Orchestra is a collection of musical instruments that are played by the weather. Scientific instruments and devices that mimic the weather are also included in the orchestra. Weather Orchestra is located on the roof where is it subject to different weather conditions. The exhibit will spark questions about weather and encourage thoughtful conversation about how weather varies from season to season.
Visitors may discover that wind is coming from different directions at different times of the day or that the sun’s position in the sky is changing due to the rotation of the earth and the seasons. These variables influence how the musical instruments are played and through careful observations, visitors can be the conductors of their own personal ‘weather orchestra.’ The juxtaposition of science, art, and technology allows many entry points for engaging with STEAM-based learning.
