Science North, creator of interactive and immersive attractions, has scooped a prestigious CASCADE award for its travelling exhibition, Wild Weather.
Wild Weather was developed and produced by Science North in partnership with the Ontario Science Centre.
The exhibition immerses guests in the science and stories surrounding extreme weather. They learn about the cutting-edge technology used to forecast weather events as well as the stories and equipment of weather seekers – the scientists, forecasters, broadcasters, and the passionate seekers and enthusiasts.
Wild Weather engages visitors of all ages through experiments, challenges, models, computer interactives and multimedia experiences.
Science North won the award for Best Exhibition or Show – Large Institution.
CASCADE awards are bestowed by The Canadian Association of Science Centres (CASC) in recognition of outstanding achievement by both individuals and organisations Canada-wide.
The awards were presented as the finale of 15th Annual CASC Conference at the Ontario Science Centre.
At the same event, the former Science Director of Science North, Jennifer Pink, was honoured with the Outstanding Career Achievement Award for her significant contributions to the Science Centre industry for over 30 years.
