This exhibit starts off with a short video on a screen about how fog forms, then the screen lowers to reveal a diarama of a street, diffrent objects light up at specfic modeled distances from the guestsThen fog begins to fill the diarama. The fog gets denser in stages the viablity will decreas in stages and the lighted objects will turn off to give the effect of decreasing visiblity.( so like the fog will be thin and visiblity will be like 70 yards and an object at the end of the box will fo out, then the fog will get denser to simulate visiblity of 50 yards, and then the next closest object will go out and so on till 0 visiblity)
This will be essential an educational jungle gym. Basically just a mulit level play aea that each level is a level of the atmosphere that has clouds that would be found there moddled on that level, on each level will snsors that when past will light up screens with the name of the cloud type and a voice will give a breif descirption, then to get back down will be a spiral cloud themed slide.
Large tank that simulates a monsoon, every 5-10 minutes. The tank it's self would basically be a large fish tank basically, and it would be filled with a false tropical environment. First a brief vocal over view would be given about monsoons, then the simulation would take place.
This would be an actual show that would take place every 20 mins
It would have seating facing a large diorama area, of a townside river, then rains, leading to the river flooding, would be given a step by step coverage of how flooding happens.
Thunder Storm Kiosks:
These would be very similar to the rain cycle kiosks in that they would display the process in which thunder storms happen in the same shadow box atmosphere. Here it would uses fiber optics to show the forming of a "storm" cloud and discuss how these are different from normal rain clouds. Then using fake rain, flashes of light and thunder sounds, along with the actual area the guests is standing on vibrating at the time of thunder, the storm cloud would eventually receded, and the show would start over.
Rain Cycle kiosk
Control panel with a start button, then a few feet back a very large shadow box with faux clouds and clear piping. The bottom of the box would be filled with water, a voice could come over explaining that when the sun heats the water in the seas and lakes, the water evaporates and travels up ward. Faux sun lights and the mist id given off by the sea, and the water level drops slightly and one of the piping begins to fill with fog and has traveling light following the path of the initial fog front. Explains condensation and fiber optics clouds begin to form, voice explains rain, and rain appears to fall out of the newly formed clouds and then the clouds dislove and the rain fall dwindles and stops proportionally to the amount of fiber optics in the cloud lit, the water level raises slightly, end of show.
Snow Fall Kiosks:
Kiosks set up similar to the rain and storm ones, but these deal with the creation of snowfall, initial using small fountains to shoot water droplets up and down, then slowly progressing to suing fans and small foam particles to represent the snow.
Initial voice overview on how hail forms via a small video screen on the control panel, next the shadow box ahead start to drop fake plastic hail onto a diorama, the diorama will react with simulated damage as the hail increases in size, the small video monitor will keep track of the increasing size of the hail and will shoe 3-d diagrams of the hail structure.
Small nearly circular exhibit that simulates a blizzard every 5- 10 mins. Features a field landscape then fill several feet with faux snow in a matter of mins.
Small kiosks that simulate water freezing into ice, through the use fiber optics what a tank of water will slowly freeze into ice and expand slightly, form the guests perception, the water which will actually be a gel inside the tanks though will have fiber optics in the glass between the guests and the water, these optics will slowly activate to show crystallization patterns, and then eventual all of the glass will be covered in light fiber optics that extend above the gel area, as ice get's less dense when it freezes.
Snow Flake Garden:
Play area made completely of giant snowflakes that descriptively show off their crystal patterns.
