Tuesday, March 30 at 4 p.m. | The Lab Online
Join us on our Facebook or YouTube pages for a science experiment or demonstration every month during The Lab Online. This month we will make it rain! Using a plastic bottle and some ice, we will mimic the water cycle within the Earth’s atmosphere and create rain in a bottle. Here’s what you’ll need if you’d like to follow along:

            • A liter or two-liter water bottle (the bigger the better)
            • 2-3 cups of water
            • 2 cups of ice
            • scissors or utility knife
            • blue food coloring (optional)
