Snowstorm in a Jar - STEM
What if you can witness a beautiful snowstorm without having to deal with shoveling or freezing into an icicle? Your wish is our command! In this STEM activity, we will be making a snowstorm in a jar. Be sure to put on those scientist goggles and watch the experiment unfold. We are sure you and your family will be amazed!
