Measuring Raindrops asks students to look at NASA technology and how the study of clouds provides scientists with information about the global environment, weather patterns and climate changes. Students then collect and analyze data about the size and shapes of raindrops. They have the opportunity to compare a 2-D representation to a 3-D representation to understand why scientists use multiple sources of data to study Earth Systems. Students may also build a simple cloud chamber.
