About the Activity

Particle materials like dust, pollution, and water vapor are all known as aerosols, which are particles floating in the air. Water vapor condenses around these materials and helps to form clouds, which affect things like air quality, temperature, and weather patterns.


Build your own cloud mobile and hang it up as a reminder of what you've learned about aerosols!
