SolBe Families,

Are “Science Wednesday’s” a thing? If they are not, I sure think they should be! This experiment is FUN (and did I mention, easy?). Channel your inner “Bill Nye” with this Rain Cloud experiment. The sun may be shining today in Boston…but its raining in here! While we’re at it, let’s learn a little bit about the science behind rain clouds!

Project of the Day: Rain Cloud Science Experiment


  • Clear Container or Bottle
  • Shaving Cream

The Experiment

Where does the rain come from? Watch this video for step-by-step project directions and ways to communicate the science behind this experiment to your kiddos. If you try this at home, share your pictures and videos with us on Instagram @solbe.learning so we can see how your experiment turned out!


Most important direction, as always: HAVE FUN!  

More resources to follow in the coming days. Feedback and more ideas welcome!
