Tornado

The Tornado Generator uses mist, fans and a uniquely shaped structure to produce a large indoor tornado. This exhibit can intentionally be manipulated so that random air currents can cause both the creation and temporary cessation of a tornado, just like in nature. This display presents a fun and ever-changing image of a powerful storm. Special tips on what to do in a tornado are featured.
