St. Stan's Students Make Clouds

The Saint Stanislaus School Academy of Math and Science grade 6 students recently made clouds.

The students are learning about the water cycle. Talcott Mountain enriched their learning by teaching the students about cloud formation.

The class discussed how the pressure and temperature in the atmosphere change due to an increase in altitude. In order to form clouds, there must be a low pressure system.

The students also learned about cloud condensation nuclei which are hygroscopic particles that attract water molecules and aid in cloud formation.

They ended the lesson by actually creating their own clouds in flasks containing warm water with a syringe attached to the top.
