MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. -

As the Grand Strand approaches the peak of hurricane season, Wonderworks employees look to educate about severe weather.

The attraction in Myrtle Beach offers three severe weather exhibits.

The Hurricane Shack allows hits visitors with 80+ mph winds, the force of a category 1 hurricane.

The Tesla Coil turns folks into a human lightening rod, striking 100,000 volts of electricity.

The Natural Disaster Info Center quizzes participants on past natural disasters.

Kaitlin Owens leads school field trips through Wonderworks during the year. No school in the summer, but she says these exhibits are a way for kids to keep science fresh in their minds.

"There's so many things you can sit down in a classroom and learn, but it adds a whole different aspect to it when you're physically interacting with stuff and learning," said Owens.

Tina Morrison, who visited the Myrtle Beach attraction from Pennsylvania, says her kids enjoyed learning from the exhibits.

"It's more productive for the kids, too. They're learning, and they're having fun, so it kind of meshes together, and they remember it a lot more," said Morrison.
