Water is everywhere around us, but how much do we really know about it? On this edition of FunScience, hosts Adrian Hopkins and Haleigh Hunt seek to understand the mechanisms behind water, clouds, and weather. Why do we experience different kinds of weather? Where does water come from? How is our drinking water different from ocean water? To answer these questions, Jared Hottenstein does a series of experiments to explain the characteristics of water and how it impacts our daily lives. Plus, Jared demonstrates how clouds are formed and how we can measure humidity.
Temple University’s College of Science and Technology (CST) and STEM Ed Network is proud to introduce FunScience Productions, the interactive program focused on providing free high-quality science lessons. Every episode brings a series of engaging demonstrations that enlighten students and teachers about the world around them in a fascinating way. The demonstrations are available in a broad range of topics including earth and space science, physical science, life science and, engineering practices. FunScience Productions highly benefits from FunScience Demos, founded by Dr. George Mehler, Assistant Professor CST with the support of ASM & CST. FunScience Productions also delivers episodes under the direction of Dr. Susan Jansen Varnum, Senior Associate Dean CST and Professor of Chemistry; and Surya Prayaga, a current Master’s degree student in Information Science & Technology with co-stars from the STEM-Ed Network and TUteach program.
