Play with a tornado at the museum. (Anne Helmenstine)Have you ever wondered what it would be like to control a tornado or even touch it? I got to do both of these things at Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry! The museum is home to a 40-foot indoor tornado, made of air and water vapor. Other exhibits include a gigantic Tesla coil, real preserved human bodies, a scale model of Chicago and tons of live demonstrations, experiments, games and interactive projects. In this picture, students are learning why Chicago actually could experience a tornado, despite its skyscrapers, and how they can use their bodies to build or dissipate the huge indoor vortex...
