Let NOVA take you on an adventure that reveals the mysteries of the world around us, through science. Each NOVA Digital Field Trip includes three programs accompanied by downloadable educational materials. These award-winning teacher guide materials include program descriptions, viewing suggestions, discussion questions, activities, and more. The Wild Weather Digital Field Trip includes:

Witness nature's fury first-hand as hurricanes Camille and Gilbert crash into the Gulf coast. Join scientist Hugh Willoughby on a data-gathering flight made into the eye of Hurricane Gilbert—a canyon of clear blue sky surrounded by a wall of clouds 10 miles high—then hear first-hand accounts from survivors of Hurricane Camille, the most devastating storm ever to strike the United States.

Hunt for the Supertwister
In seconds, a supertwister can leave immense swaths of death and destruction. But what if technology could help us tame nature's most violent tornadoes? Join fearless stormchasers as they untwist mysteries that may explain how these killer storms spawn and where they are likely to strike. And venture into America's "Tornado Alley" to witness some of the most shockingly intense tornado footage ever filmed.

NOVA takes you on a high-voltage trip into the most electrically charged weather in the world—culminating in a dazzling lightning show set to music that rivals the most extraordinary fireworks display. Join scientists as they tempt nature by creating the world's tallest lightning rod, which triggers awe-inspiring thunderbolts a few hundred feet from the observers—and creates a chunk of "petrified" lightning—then visit with some of lightning's tragic victims who thought they were out of harm's way.

Special DVD features include: materials and activities for educators; a link to the NOVA Web site; scene selections; and closed captions.
