Eye of the Storm: Hurricane Hunters
Time & Location
About The Event
Florida International University’s (FIU) International Hurricane Research Center (IHRC) and Museum of Discovery and Science (MODS) invite families across the nation, especially those in hurricane-prone regions, to explore this free virtual series, Eye of the Storm. The series is sponsored by the Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) and IHRC.
In this episode, you’ll learn about hurricane science and fly into the eye of the storm with hurricane hunters. Step aboard a uniquely-outfitted plane, hear directly from a hurricane hunter about her career and see all of the latest gadgets, drones and tracking devices from inside the storm. Then you’ll fly over to the Museum of Discovery and Science’s Leighton Family Hangar, a brand new, state-of-the-art aviation-themed makerspace, for some awesome aeronautical activities.
Special thanks to our partners at NOAA Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML).
