“Becoming Weatherwise: A History of Climate Science in America” is an exhibition at the American Philosophical Society’s Museum. It explores the questions and methods that have driven the study of weather and climate in the Western world from the mid-eighteenth century through today. The exhibition highlights the importance of work by amateurs and professionals who have worked collaboratively to study weather and climate in the interest of agriculture, human health and comfort, military dominance, and simple curiosity. Celebrating both professional scientists and those who get involved in community science, “Becoming Weatherwise” promotes the scientific side of the Civic Season!
