It’s Getting Foggy Out!!!

What you need:


  1. Fill the large jar/bottle with hot water all the way to the top.
  2. Pour most of the water out, leaving about 2 centimeters in the bottom.
  3. Set the strainer over the mouth of the jar and put ice cubes in the strainer.
  4. Watch what happens!

How it works:

Fog is created from water. In this experiment, the cold air from the ice cubes will cause the warm, moist air in the bottle to condense. This forms fog.
