EI Live K-12: Crystal Mysteries: The Secret Lives of Snowflakes (Grades 5-8)

June 1, 2020
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Presenters: Ann Fridlind, Adjunct Research Scientist, Center for Climate Systems Research, Earth Institute, and Kyle Fitch, PhD Candidate, Department of Atmospheric Sciences, University of Utah Description: The shapes of a snowflakes can tell us a lot about how much we can expect the planet to warm or how much snow we can expect from an approaching snowstorm. Through a presentation and hands-on demonstration*, students will learn how ice particles are born in “cold” clouds, how they grow, and how they eventually fall out of clouds as snow. We will also discuss how these tiny, complicated snowflake shapes are tied to larger global climate and weather patterns. RSVP above.
