Waterloo sponsors Nature Unleashed exhibit at THEMUSEUM

By Amy Geddes, the Water Institute and Sarah J. Brown, Interdisciplinary Centre on Climate Change. This is the latest in a series of #UWCommunity stories that feature Waterloo in the community. 

Usually, you count yourself lucky to have avoided natural disasters first-hand. But Nature Unleashed: Inside Natural Disasters, the newest exhibit at THEMUSEUM in downtown Kitchener, intentionally immerses visitors in the natural disaster experience via interactive displays.

Sponsored in part by the University of Waterloo in a three-way partnership between Community Relations, the Water Institute and the Interdisciplinary Centre on Climate Change (IC3), visitors of all ages are invited to stand in the eye of a tornado, build a volcano, and move tectonic plates. A dialogue series of public lectures later in the fall, some featuring Waterloo faculty members, will augment the experience.
