Title: The Why Files Interactives
Url: https://whyfiles.org/category/interactives/
Publisher: University of Wisconsin--Madison
Description: At this Why Files website, students can learn about meteorology and physics through five interactive games. Students can adjust the funnel width and the pressure difference to observe how these factors affect the destruction caused by a tornado. At the Play with Lightning link, users can examine how distance affects the dangers of lightening and the loudness of the thunder. The Hit a Homerun game allows visitors view the path of a baseball at different altitudes, speeds, and angles. The website also illustrates how temperature affects the shape of snowflakes.
