Have you ever wondered about the wonders of Winter?

The weather, temperature and snowy landscapes in Winter are what we come to expect when we enter this season. They make it what it is.
This information booklet is about one element of this season....snowflakes.

We try to catch them, eat them and hold them but do you know anything about these fascinating little things? Read on and find out...
The Science of Snowflakes
Written by: Kristine Nannini
Unless you live in a desert or a tropical climate, you’ve probably seen snowflakes fall from the sky. It’s an amazing sight when snow collects on the ground and blankets everything.
When most people see snow, they try to find creative ways to melt it and clear it from the roads. However, scientists would rather study it. Through many years of research, scientists have made some amazing discoveries about these little frozen crystals.

One such discovery is how snowflakes form. Snowflakes are part of the water cycle because snow is a form of precipitation, just like rain. When the temperature is zero degrees celsius (......) or colder, water changes from a liquid to a solid.

A snowflake is a special kind of solid. It forms when water vapour condenses, or gathers onto dust particles inside of clouds. On warm days, the water vapour would collect to make rain drops. However, on cold or freezing days, the water vapour can collect into frozen crystals which fall from the sky as snow.
In addition to how they form, scientists have researched how snowflakes get their crystal shape. They found that all water molecules have an electric charge.
