If Dorothy Gale had known how to read the weather, could she have avoided her trip over the rainbow? For thousands of years before the rise of modern instruments and computer models, people forecast the weather by watching the sky—and their methods still work today. At this Science on Screen Jr. event, Harvard Professor John Huth will explain the science of weather and share some basic observational skills that will help you forecast the weather just by looking out your window!
After Dr. Huth's 20-minute presentation, we'll watch one of the best-loved movies of all time, The Wizard of Oz! In addition to what is perhaps cinema's most famous weather event, this musical family classic features some of the most memorable characters and elaborate set-pieces of American cinema, with a star-making performance by Judy Garland.
Recommended for ages 6+.
