Did you know that clouds are not weightless? They can hold millions of gallons of water and weigh 500,00 kilograms. Clouds play an important role in the water cycle, reflect solar radiation from the sun, and have significant implications for pilots. We will be making clouds in jars, learning about the science of clouds, and discussing how clouds affect the aviation industry.
Preparation: hot water from a kettle or microwave (with adult supervision), a glass jar with a lid, hairspray, a small bowl that fits on top of the jar, ice. Optional: food colouring, black paper (to use as a background)
Expert: Winnie Ho and Joy Wan are 4th-year students in the Science and Aviation program at the University of Waterloo, specializing in earth science.
