Visitors receive a password to record their forecast and view it online.

Visitors write and report their own weather forecast at the “Weather Studio” exhibit.  First, visitors use the scriptwriting station to view real time weather conditions and create a forecast.  Then the visitor stands in front of a “green screen” and is digitally recorded reading their forecast from a teleprompter.  The appropriate images are keyed over the background.  Visitors have the option of receiving an email containing a link to their video to view at home.

Visitors can view average data for weather patterns or view live data collected by instruments on the roof of the Connecticut Science Center.

The “Weather Instruments” exhibit displays live weather data collected by several instruments on the roof of the Connecticut Science Center.  In addition to viewing the live data, the visitor can learn how the instruments work and see average data for different weather conditions like a snowstorm or lightning storm.

NETG provided all the multimedia and exhibit control software for these exhibits.
