Meteorologist Brian Shields Welcomes You

Updated:

None - Welcome to the Severe Weather Center 9 Experience at the Orlando Science Center. This is one of the most exciting projects I’ve ever worked on. We are so happy to bring you this hands-on weather experience.

This isn’t just a “walk by and glance at” type of exhibit. This is the real deal! We replicated the Severe Weather Center 9 you see on TV each day and dropped it right onto the 4th floor of the Orlando Science Center. There you can see what we do and even DO what we do.

My favorite part is the green screen. You can step up in front of the camera and see what it’s like to be a television meteorologist. 3... 2... 1... YOU! It’s a challenge that I’m sure you’re up to.

Also, you can cruise around the weather center and get an inside look at different weather phenomenon. We’ll show you what is really behind tornadoes and hurricanes, and even what causes a rainbow. And with your new weather knowledge, you can create your own forecast.

I love this exhibit and you have to check it out! It is full of weather – but also full of fun and laughs.
