Science of Weather at San Francisco International Airport

Waiting. Something that’s so hard for kids to do and something that’s an absolute guarantee when you’re flying. Props to San Francisco International Airport for featuring interactive displays for kids. The Kids’ Spot in our terminal featured a number of weather-related displays that allow kids (and let’s be honest, adults) to play with the concept of wind and air as they wait. The tornado display was hands-down our favorite.

No surprise that this display is sponsored by the fabulous Exploratorium. Another kid-friendly area – sponsored by the California Academy of Sciences – features an aquarium with live frogs, fish, and corals from the tropics.
