Storm Fest - Carnegie Science Center

A few weeks ago, we went to the
Storm Fest
at Carnegie Science Center, Pittsburgh, PA

The Storm Fest was presented in partnership with California University of PA.

Not only did we get to enjoy the everyday exhibits of the Science Center,
but we also got to participate in lots of fun weather related activities.

Nathan made several weather related crafts

a lava bottle

a rain stick


a wind sock

He learned what type of tent would best protect him in different elements

He learned how to make a homemade thermometer

a cloud

and did a cupcake core sampling

a weather map

paper snowflake

He made a rock

and many more fun weather activities.

We also watched a show by the "Weather Dude" Nick Walker of The Weather Channel.

Nathan's name was pulled from the hat and he won a song book and CD by Nick Walker.

He also got his autograph and picture taken with him.

Then, we checked out an old retired submarine....


We topped off the trip with a stop at the Sports Work Center, where Nathan tried out a bunch of fun games and we took a ride through the human body.

It was a super fun day.
