Just inside the 117-year-old Museum of Science and Industry
on Chicago's South Side visitors will find a high-tech extravaganza. The new permanent exhibit Science Storms
opened last week. It takes up 2600 square feet, is three stories high, and gives visitors the opportunity to experiment with a live tornado and an enclosed fire – assuming you'd want to do such things. Richard Steele recently had a chance to give it all a whirl with senior exhibit developer Olivia Castellini. They began in the eye of a storm.
