Dynamic Earth: Exploring Earth’s Climate Engine

This exciting program follows a trail of energy that flows from the Sun into the interlocking systems that shape our climate. Audiences will ride along on swirling ocean and wind currents, dive into the heart of a monster hurricane, come face-to-face with sharks and gigantic whales, and fly into roiling volcanoes. We explore the relationship between Earth and the Sun, life and the carbon cycle, Earth’s climate control system, and how human activities are changing our planet. Come learn how dynamic planet Earth really is!
