See our home planet as you’ve never seen it before: projected and animated on a giant, suspended globe, Science on a Sphere® from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Watch dramatic weather unleash furious historic storms, see special spherical movies about space, tsunamis, and waterfalls, and meet the scientists who study our climate.

Thursday’s schedule includes both general public hours and invitation only programs for schools, detailed below.

General Public. 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM
Enjoy your lunch and the afternoon in Science on a Sphere® watching spherical short movies and learning about extreme weather.

Invitation Only School Programs:
What Goes Around Comes Around: Oceans, Atmosphere and Weather: School Excursions—NYU’s Courant Institute and NOAA team up with WSF to teach students how weather systems are created. Students will engage firsthand with scientists for a hands-on learning experience! Suggested for grades 3-5.
