In a secret science lab far, far away, the temperature is about to rise as the Crazy Scientist embarks on a journey of discovery about weather, climates, and the people and animals affected by their change.

Join award-winning entertainer, scientist and teacher Richard Scholes as he demonstrates what makes clouds, rain and snow, and even how cyclones and tornados are formed with a giant toroidal smoke vortex!

Students will learn how the weather affects all living things, the difference between weather and climate, why we have seasons, and how plants and animals survive in extreme climates by adaptation.
