The Crazy Weather Show | Scientific Sue
Event Description

Weather can be extreme, scary and devastating and the effects of any change in climate is just going to make weather even scarier. No better topic for Scientific Sue to use her drama skills to entertain you!!

We all know about tornados but did you know fires can also spin! Sue will demonstrate how fire tornados can be formed and explain why the eucalyptus tree is potentially one of Australia’s fire brigades’ biggest enemies.

This show has given Scientific Sue a few engineering challenges too. High winds can knock down bridges; sometimes these bridges are the life line for remote villages – This happened during storm Maria in 2017! Lots of volunteers will be needed to help build a pulley system out of balloons to show how the stranded villagers helped solve the lack of food and water problem!

The consequences of any changes to our climate could lead to intense droughts, storms, heat waves and rising sea levels – we don’t want to alarm you we want to scare you! Scare you with crazy, innovative science demonstrations which will answer many questions the children my have around the topic of weather and climate.
